May Is National Strawberry Month


If you love strawberries, then you know that nothing compares in
texture or flavor to a red, ripe succulent strawberry!

Some Strawberry Fact:

* Strawberries were originally called "Strewberries". They were
called this due to the way the berries seem to be just strewn
about the leaves of the plant.

* Eight strawberries provide 140 percent of the recommended
daily intake of Vitamin C.

* Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen in the spring.

* One cup of strawberries has just 55 calories.

* The strawberry is the only fruit with the seeds (on average, 200) on the outside of the fruit.

* Strawberries are grown in every state in the United States and
every province of Canada.

I like to use scones topped with strawberries and whipping cream, but angelfood cake is good and less calories

yes I like the angelfood in fact that is how we make our shortcake most of the time, as it cheaper too.. and a much bigger cake.
Plus I love angelfood cake by it self too. or with other toppings.

Bought a whole box of strawberries at the farmers market. They are way cheaper than at the stores. Cleaned them and froze them, bagged them for later use. Took about five out tonight and chopped it with a half banana. Was better than ice cream nice and creamy. Like ( Abear )
said they are low in calories and healthy too.
