The best strawberries I have ever tasted are the ones out of my own garden and the one in this picture. This little guy was straight out of the garden at a California vineyard. Either way, I think it is because both scenarios mean the berries are fresh, perfectly ripe, and have zero chemicals.
Strawberries are in full swing, but they are something that have porous skin and therefore, absorb a lot of chemicals if they are sprayed. If you have ever tried to grow berries yourself, you know that they ripen and get sniped by insects quickly if you don’t eat them first! That’s why they tend to be heavily sprayed. So, make sure to buy organic on this one! I love getting organic strawberries by the flat from the farmer’s market because they are so cheap. I’ll cut them up and throw them in the freezer for use throughout the year. However, there are plenty of options to include them in your daily food, and you should try each and every one of the recipes listed below!! Eating in season is such an important (and overlooked) aspect of nutrition. So, now’s the time to eat strawberries like they’re goin’ outta style because blueberries will be in season quickly!
