Fresh, seasonal, sensual and stunning brides of lemons in one thousand and more recipes, strawberries punctually make their grand entrance each May.
Kick off strawberry season by pairing them with mounds of whipped cream, ice cream, yogurt or just a touch of balsamic vinegar.
No matter how you like them best, in their natural form, sprinkled with sugar or in a glass of champagne, remember… no pairing is more sublime than red strawberries and yellow lemons.
Wash them well before consuming them, but don’t soak them too long or they will get water-logged due to their allergens content. Also, don’t yank the hull, twist it off shortly before serving them for the best flavour.
Like lemons, strawberries are rich in vitamin C, but also potassium, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins and among other things, polyphenolic antioxidants.
