Who can resist a fresh sweet strawberry, ripe from the patch?  Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and are rich in the B-complex vitamins.  They also contain significant amounts of vitamins A and E, and the minerals potassium, manganese, fluorine, copper, iron and iodine.
To prepare, wash strawberries in cold water.  An easy way is to dip them in cold water in a large bowl for a few seconds, allowing any sand to wash off.  Spread out on a cloth and gently pat dry.  Remove stems and caps with a paring knife.  They are now ready to snack on or use in salads, pies, tarts, and smoothies.
To store strawberries, sort out any damaged ones.  Place them in a wide bowl or plate, cover with a paper towel, and refrigerate.  Use within a day or two.
