Ruby Tuesday: A Bucket of Strawberries

It's strawberry picking season time. In the U.S. strawberries typically peak during April in Florida and Texas, May in the deep South, and in early June in middle sections and later June in the far North and Canada. Crops are ready at various times of the month depending on which part of the state you are located.
 A bucket of strawberries for only $11.00. It's cheap and it's organic!

Tips on How to Pick Strawberries

1. Grasp the stem just above the berry between the forefinger and the thumbnail and pull with a slight twisting motion.

2. With the stem broken about one-half inch from the berry, allow it to roll into the palm of your hand.how to pick strawberries

3. Repeat these operations using both hands until each holds 3 or 4 berries.

4. Carefully place - don't throw - the fruit into your containers. Repeat the picking process with both hands.

5. Don't overfill your containers or try to pack the berries down.

Masarap talaga ang strawberries lalo na kung flavor ito sa ice cream. Mahal dito sa Pinas ang strawberries dahil nanggagaling pa sa Baguio. I love to eat strawberries na fresh at nilalagyan nang cream or condensed milk, wow, sarap talaga. Thanks for the yummy post. God bless you all always.
