A favourite in our household and for many, Strawberries are a good source of vitamin C, manganese, folate (vitamin B9), and potassium, and not only they are the only fruit that wear their seeds on the outside, they also contain high levels of nitrate and this has been shown to increase blood and oxygen flow to the muscles. Research suggests that people who load up on strawberries before exercising have greater endurance and burn more calories.
Strawberries are so loved by many that they have in Belgium a museum dedicated to them! In the gift shop at @museedelafraise (The Strawberry Museum), you can buy everything from strawberry jam to strawberry beer.
To store fresh strawberries, wash them and cut the stem away. However, if you plan to keep them in the fridge for a few days, wait until before you eat them to clean them. Rinsing them speeds up spoiling.
Here at Cultured Bakehouse, we do our outmost to choose the freshest ingredients to add great not only great taste but all over goodness to your life. Check out our Strawberry Cake for instance. You won’t be disappointed 🙂
