Springtime is strawberry time, and April is when an abundance of the berries begins to appear at farmers' markets and grocery stores. To get the most out of strawberries, wash them shortly before serving and eat them within a few days, as ripe berries are very perishable once picked. Strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C and also contain fiber, potassium, magnesium and Vitamin B-6. Plain strawberries are a quick and easy snack, and they also pair well with many other foods. See below for healthy recipe ideas, or learn more about strawberries and view their nutrition facts at the USDA's Seasonal Produce Guide.
