Fresh Strawberries in Winter
I like strawberries. Growing up, having fresh strawberries was a special summer time treat, when they were in season. In our world today, fresh strawberries are available to us almost year around in our grocery stores, and I love having them out on the counter ready and available for snacking. Of course, we also occasionally use them in salads and desserts and jam. Strawberries have been fairly expensive the past few months, so we've resorted to the typical apples and oranges and bananas for our fresh fruit. Yesterday I found fresh strawberries from California on sale, so I bought a pound. They're sweet and juicy and wonderful! Even in cold February we can enjoy fresh strawberries!
