Whats for dinner….Strawberries!!!

 

 

This week on Whats for Dinner we are looking at the first fruit of the season…STRAWBERRIES!

Bauman Farms Gervais OR Yummy strawberries

 

Fun Facts:

  1. A strawberry has, on average, 200 seeds.
  2. Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the outside. It is argued that, for this reason, it cannot be considered a real berry, since berries carry seeds on the inside.
  3. Over 53 percent of seven to nine-year-olds picked strawberries as their favorite fruit.
  4. In a test, subjects who ate nitrate rich foods like strawberries, before exercising burned 100 more calories than those who did not.
  5. Strawberries are grown in all 50 states!

 

Cooking/Preparing:

 

As we all know…the number one way to eat a strawberry is FRESH! But did you know that you can also add them in TONS of baked goods, you can freeze them, and you can dehydrate them!
