What’s in Season

Stop and Smell the Strawberries By Mary Gajda   The beautiful red color of a strawberry contains antioxidants, lots of vitamin C for immunity, fiber for proper digestion and potassium to keep your blood flowing. This perennial plant holds berries that individually have over 200 seeds and will grow back year after year. Use freshly frozen strawberries in smoothies, add to your oatmeal or infuse to your water for a refreshing taste. Enjoy the sweet and savory taste of summer with some delicious and nutritious strawberries. Preparing tip: Don’t wash or rinse cut strawberries under water until you’re ready to taste their sweetness because it speeds up spoiling.
