Spring’s First Sweet Treat // Top 10 Ways To Enjoy Strawberries

Spring is springing here in Northern Utah. It won’t be long until gardens can be planted, and fresh produce can be enjoyed right at home. In the meantime, there are plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables available at local grocery stores.

Strawberries are often on sale this time of year. They are one of the most widely grown fruits in the world. Most of the strawberries we see at stores in Utah have come to us by way of California and make the perfect sweet treat. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. One serving, about 8 strawberries, has just as much vitamin C as an orange! Plus, they are low in calories and sugar.

There are many different ways to enjoy strawberries. Be adventurous and try one of the ideas from fruitsandveggies.org. You can find links to my favorite recipes below. Enjoy!
