Seasonal Spotlight: Strawberries
Why Eat Strawberries?
These low-growing perennials are most abundant May through June in Solano County. California produces the most strawberries in the U.S. They are a great source of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, fiber, folic acid and potassium.
How to Prepare Them
Strawberries can be eaten fresh, in salads, and in desserts, jams and jellies.
Try strawberries in these two recipes: Salad with Basalmic-Glazed Strawberries and Goat Cheese and Easy Strawberry Refrigerator Jam and find other seasonal recipes here.
