Did you know that a serving of fresh strawberries contains 140% of your recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C? They also contain flavonoids which help lower bad cholesterol. Better yet, they are low in calories and just delicious! Enjoy them when they are available locally. These are a few of the ways that I have been enjoying the fresh berries:
Fresh Picked Strawberries from Cedar Hill Farms, Red Hill Road, Middletown, NJ $5.50/qt.
Sourdough French Toast topped with fresh strawberries - scrumptious!
Chocolate Covered Strawberries made with Valrhona Dark Chocolate - oh my!
I was born and raised in NJ, first in Hunterdon County, later relocating to Monmouth County, and finally I am in Northern Ocean County. I work In Middlesex County and went to college in Mercer County. Whew... Therefore, I have knowledge of much of the Garden State. I am passionate about food; especially local foods. I have been addicted to farm markets since I was very young. I have a great husband and two of the best daughters anyone could wish for. NJ is an epicurean's delight! I would love your comments and questions.
