Worth knowing about the strawberry
Storage: sensitive fruits
Strawberries are extremely sensitive. Just a few hours after the harvest, they begin to lose their aroma. Therefore you should eat them as soon as possible. Unwashed and covered, you can store the sensitive fruits in the fridge for up to two days. A flat container prevents pressure points. Damaged fruits should be removed, they mold quickly.
Tips for preparing strawberries
Do not clean strawberries under a stream of running water, but in stagnant water. Remove stalk and sepals only after washing. Strawberries are best tasted fresh – either pure or with some whipped cream or ice cream. They are also popular in salads, dried in muesli or as a cake topping. Strawberry jam is a classic. By the way: the color of the fruit gives no information about its aroma! Deep red strawberries are not always sweeter, lighter fruits do not automatically contain more fruit acid.
Ingredients: Vitamin C
The aromatic fruits are good for the slim line with about 32 kilocalories per hundred grams. Noteworthy is their high content of fiber (pectins and cellulose), which promote digestion. Strawberries are also rich in vitamins. Especially their vitamin C content is enormous: it is higher than with lemons and oranges.
