Fit for the Fireworks Fuel: STRAWBERRIES

In season – You guessed it, NOW!

What to look for when buying – Bright red berries that don’t have much, if any green or white coloring. Avoid berries that appear slimy, wet or “furry.”

Flavor – Um, AMAZING!

Storage – Keep them on the counter, not the fridge. And if possible, give them a bit of air/circulation to prevent any moisture from collecting on them, which can lead to mold. Wash them just before eating them.

Nutrition – 1 cup of halved strawberries provides over 100% of your Daily Value for Vitamin C. Plus you’ll get 3 grams of fiber all for less than 50 calories!
