At Season’s Peak Feature: Strawberries

Florida strawberries are at their best from January through March. They’re an excellent source of vitamin C. Eight medium strawberries (5.3 oz) are only 50 calories and provide 160% of the vitamin C you need in a day. Follow these tips to enjoy strawberries at their finest:

  • Eat them up as soon as you can!
  • Refrigerate no longer than three days.
  • For best flavor, allow berries to come to room temperature.

Just before eating, rinse with cool water, then remove the green caps with a sharp paring knife, or by a sharp twist.
