In California strawberry season begins in April, peaks in June and often continues thru November. They are packed with nutrients; Vitamin C, folate, fiber, and potassium.
Culinary Tip: It isn’t necessary to wash and clean the fruit until you are ready to enjoy them. When you do place them in 8 cups water and 1 cup white vinegar. This mix will remove dirt and bacteria. Rinse gently, allow to dry on a thick towel and store in refrigerator.
