Did you know that strawberries are not actually classified as a berry by botanists? It’s true, and I just learned this useless fact today thanks to my friend Stephanie. (She later confessed that she learned this from a Snapple lid. Ha!)
Regardless of what you consider a strawberry, prices are dropping as summer is approaching. If you are stocking up on this healthy fruit, get creative in the kitchen! They freeze well, too, so be sure to grab some freezer bags and save some to enjoy later.
I happen to adore strawberries. My favorite way to eat them? Chocolate-covered. Mmmm. What’s yours?
I have rounded up some delicious recipes using strawberries from around the blogosphere. Who knew there were so many ways to enjoy the popular berry fruit?
