Better Than Candy

Summer is here with strawberries everywhere. Organic, and traditional grown. Which should you choose? Oraganic would be the first choice since strawberries have a porus skin. Once you get your strawberries home, do not wash until you plan to eat. This will keep them from rotting.
Stawberries can be frozen for future use. Wash, dry, cut into peices, lay on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper. Pop into the freezer . After an hour, remove the frozen strawberries and put into a container for future use.

    I had no idea that washing them led to faster rotting! I am literally just about to go strawberry picking, so I’m glad I read this first! Thanks!

      I learned this at the farmers market. So whenever I go to the Farmers Market I ask questions.

    Went to the Farmers Market in Santa Monica and bought strawberries from McGrath and peaches from Tenerelli. When I came home and sliced them to serve after dinner, a quick taste told me no added sugar was needed. There is nothing better than ripe fruit at the peak of the season.

      I have been eating a sliced peach almost everyday. Try adding cinnamon, you’ll love it!
