Strawberry Season

From a botanical point of view, this is not actually a berry, because it has its seeds on the outside of the fruit rather than the inside. Strawberries are full of vitamins: They contain many B vitamins, folic acid, zinc, copper and even more vitamin C than oranges or lemons.

To mark the beginning of the strawberry season we put together a few tips!

◎ Strawberries should not be rinsed with a strong water jet, but rather be soaked in cold water for a few minutes.

◎ Drain the washed strawberries well or pat dry carefully.

◎ Always remove stems and leaves after washing, otherwise the aroma will be watered down.

◎ Strawberries taste best at room temperature, so make sure to take them out of the fridge 30 minutes before eating.

◎ Freeze some strawberries and then puree them with a mixer to make a fruity ice cream, the best refreshment in summer! Those who like to experiment can also add a few leaves of basil, which gives a very special, fresh kick.
