While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Seeds on the outside, sweet on the inside - February 27 is National Strawberry Day!
Even if these little red fruits bursting with sweet perfection aren't in season, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy them today!
A gift from Chile in the 1700s, garden strawberry plants made their way to North America in the 1750s. The plant is fairly easy to grow and doesn't seem adverse to flourishing anywhere in the world. If you'd like your own homegrown strawberries this summer, make sure your plant has full sun and sandy soil - and your dogs don't eat off all the berries before you can pick a few.
But if you are one of the lucky folks who stumbled on some great fresh strawberries, you can whip up a strawberry pie, shortcake or even a simple dish of strawberries and cream.
We wish you a berry nice day, and strawberry fields forever.
