Taste of summer: strawberries are in season!
Strawberries are now in season and will be throughout the entire summer months. They are the perfect snack for picnics, strolls, hikes or hanging out on the back patio.
They’re easy to pop in your mouth and taste great on their own. Or, think about dipping them in whipped cream, chocolate or other delightful fruit dips. We prefer to stuff them with a chocolate ganache and top with another berry, like a blue berry. This makes for a berry heaven, which is an exquisite dessert when it’s hot outside.
Oh, and did we mention they’re pretty good for you? Prized in ancient Rome for their medicinal uses, strawberries are recognized as having more vitamin C than some citrus fruits. They are also high in fiber, folate, potassium and antioxidants, making them a natural means of reducing the chances of heart disease, high blood pressure and certain cancers.
