Sweet, decadent and bursting with romantic flavour, strawberries can make any occasion memorable. These heart shaped berries are red in colour, packed full of vitamin C, and exude an air of regal luxury that emanates with every heart-healthy bite.
May – December
Strawberries are perfect when they are firm to the touch, robust and plump, have a warm and distinguishable rose-red colour, and are free of green and yellow patches.
Strawberries can be prepared and served in a multitude of equally delicious ways. Naturally filled with flavour, they are traditionally served at room temperature, whole or sliced. They are perfect when paired with a serving of whipped cream, and just as tasty when matched with a medley of other fruits in scrumptious fruit salads.
Store your strawberries in a cold and dry space. By keeping them above room temperature and free from moisture you are essentially helping them avoid getting mouldy.
