Spring’s First Sweet Treat // Top 10 Ways To Enjoy Strawberries

Spring is springing here in Northern Utah. It won’t be long until gardens can planted and fresh produce can be enjoyed right at home. In the meantime, there are plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables available at local grocery stores.

You have might noticed when you have done your shopping lately that strawberries have been on sale. The strawberry is one of the most widely grown fruits in the world. Most of the strawberries we see at stores in Utah have come to us by way of California, and make the perfect sweet treat. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. One serving, about 8 strawberries, has just as much vitamin C as an orange! Plus, they are low in calories and sugar.

There are so many different ways to enjoy strawberries. Be adventurous and try one of the ideas provided by fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org. Below you will find links to the recipes mentioned as well as some of my favorite strawberry recipes. Enjoy!
