Tis The Season

Did you know that the strawberry is very high in antioxidants?  Antioxidants are good for your body because they contain levels of  vitamins A, C and E and they can lower the risks of certain diseases.

Here in the South Central part of Pennsylvania, the strawberry is "in season". They are best to consume when their amazing red color is vibrant and rich in luster. This is when they are the highest in their nutritional value. Unfortunately, the strawberry has a short shelf life. If you keep them refrigerated, it will keep them fresher a little longer.

So, what are you waiting for....go pick up some strawberries today! Toss them into your salad, or fruit shake and enjoy those healthy benefits!
