While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
February 27 is National Strawberry Day.
As most of us long for spring and summer, let’s take a moment to get excited about all the fruits and vegetables that will be filling our fridges come warmer weather - like strawberries.
There is more to the strawberry than meets the eye: They're technically not berries, and they're considered to be the only fruit with their seeds on the outside. While strawberries aren't in season until May or June in most areas, that doesn't mean you can't find these ruby gems in your grocery store, you just need to check a different aisle.
Frozen strawberries can be used many ways - they’re great in smoothies or for ice creams. They can also be used in frozen alcoholic drinks like daiquiris or margaritas. You can even cook them down for sauces: Brush pork or chicken with strawberry barbecue sauce, or drizzle strawberry balsamic sauce on top of ice cream or cake.
