Top 12 Fresh and Delicious Strawberry Recipes

 Strawberries are not only juicy and delicious; they're nutritious! Strawberries are particularly high in antioxidants and vitamin C and are a good source of manganese. 

Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the outside. The botanic name, Fragaria, means fragrance, a perfect description of their sweet scent. 

While strawberries are available year-round, the most flavorful and juicy ones will be found from April to July. Berries are picked with the cap and part of the stem left on when they are fully ripe. They aren't washed until just before they're eaten. 

How to Freeze Fresh Strawberries

To freeze strawberries whole, rinse them in cold water and drain well. Hull them, remove damaged or spoiled berries, and place them on a baking sheet in a single layer. Put them in the freezer until frozen solid and they put them in a freezer bag. Label the bags with the name and date and store them in the freezer for up to 6 months.
