Ripe, sweet-smelling strawberries are amazing. They are so beautiful that you can compose a still life scene worthy of painting just by putting them out on a nice plate or in a favorite bowl. They are simple to prepare as party food, great in fruit salad and a wonderful, edible garnish for a brunch food from eggs to pancakes to French toast. If you buy them carefully, keep them well and serve them graciously, you can make strawberries an elegant part of any meal.
Added bonus – strawberries are healthy. They do not contain fat or sodium and are a significant source of Vitamin C. In fact, 8 medium sized strawberries have only 50 calories and contain 160% of the average daily requirement of Vitamin C.
