Strawberry Recipes

Strawberries are our first fruit to ripen in the spring. We usually have an abundance of the sweet juicy berries so make sure to take the time to come the farm and pick for a delicious, memorable spring outing with the family!

Strawberries are low in fat and calories but high in vitamin C, fiber, potassium and folic acid. Studies have indicated that eating these and other foods rich in nitrates can increase the blood and oxygen flow to your muscles by 7%.

Storage Do not wash the berries or remove the caps until you are ready to use. The riper the fruit the shorter amount of time they will store. Place them in a colander uncovered in the refrigerator.

Freezing Freezing is quite simple. You can first wash and remove caps then place them on a cookie sheet in the freezer for about 18 hours or so. Bag them and put back in the freezer. You can use them frozen or thaw in the refrigerator.
