Anyone for Strawberries

Strawberries are a firm favourite in our house, but did you know! They are 91% water, and can be a great contributor to your water intake for the day! They also deliver the most vitamin C of all berries, plus folate, fibre and antioxidants. You can eat them as a little snack (so enjoyable) or with some yogurt, or double cream ... even in a salad, it's a great summer fruit.

Yes please, they are delicious and nutritious. :) We have greatly enjoyed our own strawberries. Unfortunately, the season was very short, due to the unusually hot weather.
Happy weekend! Stay safe and well!

Season is short, pleasure is great! I believe all the berry fruit are healthy and tasty; we just don't have them growing here. Imported, are quite expensive.

One of my favorite fruits! We grow them however this year the yield has been sadly low. We always have froze strawberries in the freezer to enjoy with yogurt.

Siempre las comro cuando están en buena producción. Hay una provincia, dentro de Andalucía, que es donde vivo yo y tiene una buena producción y excelente calidad, en este rico fruto. Está en la provincia de Huelva y las suelo comprar en cajas de 2 kg.
