Strawberries have a very short shelf life so it is best to eat them quickly. Put them in the fridge unwashed and uncovered with the hulls still on. Did you know...
Field strawberries can only be picked when it is not raining. Any moisture causes them to go mouldy almost immediately (that is why they should be stored unwashed). Culinary Compatibility:
Strawberries go well in a spinach salad. They also go well on lettuce with avocados and orange slices. Dip strawberries in chocolate for a simple treat. Health Information:
Strawberries are very high in Vitamin C. They are also a good source of folate and fibre. Strawberries contain phytochemicals that reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. Conventionally grown strawberries are heavily sprayed with pesticides.
