Seeing beautiful strawberries in the market is a sure sign of summer. When searching for strawberries, look for those that are firm, with a deep red color and bright green stems. (Nothing worse than biting into a strawberry only to find a bitter, white center!) Look for ones that are loosely packaged, too; overcrowding can lead to bruising.
Strawberry edibles that first come to mind are jams and tarts, or simply whole berries; but this fruit is pretty versatile. Consider more savory options, too.
