Strawberries 101: Nutritionally Beneficial and More!

Nothing says springtime quite like fresh strawberries. With over 600 varieties grown across the U.S., these juicy morsels vary in size and flavor intensity. Typically, the smaller the berry, the more intense the flavor.

Whether enjoyed fresh out of the hand, or as an addition to any recipe, strawberries are a great source of:

  • Antioxidants
  • Vitamin C
  • Fiber
  • Potassium
  • and more!

These vitamins and nutrients are said to:

  • Help lower blood pressure
  • Boost immune systems
  • Promote eyesight
  • Help protect against cancer

Tune in for a quick and easy way to de-stem or “hull” these delicate delights.

Make strawberries a staple in your springtime diet with fun and creative ways of incorporating the fruit into snacks and side dishes, including strawberry roses.
