These sweet, juicy berries are treats when right off the plant. Supermarket berries tend to be tart with grainy texture; this is because the natural sugar in the berries begins converting to starch as soon as it is plucked from the plant. It’s definitely worth your while to try planting your own strawberries, and the good news is that they are relatively easy to grow if you have full sun.

From smoothies, jams, tarts and cakes, to ice-pops, mousse and trifles – You can make a heap of things from your bounty!! Enjoy them while you can, and don’t forget, you can also freeze strawberries!! Check out this great article from empressofdirt.net for more information – click here:
