Every May 20th, National Pick Strawberries Day encourages us to pick some strawberries. Right about this time of year, they start coming into season.


There is something special about the taste of a sun-warmed strawberry picked straight off of the vine. Strawberries are best fresh, but they also make delicious desserts. Strawberry shortcakes or adding them to homemade yogurt and fresh jams come to mind. However, strawberries also have other good qualities.
