Strawberry Overload (Is there such a thing?)
Get ready for more strawberries than you can handle!
- June 4-6 is Lasalle’s Strawberry Festival. They don’t use local berries so maybe we should all push for that!
- The Downtown Windsor Farmers’ Market opens June 12th with fresh produce including strawberries (visit early for the best selection).
- Trusty Food to You / Tredki Acres in Amherstburg now has chemical-free strawberries available. Get the berries delivered or visit the farm for pre-picked and pick-your-own starting this Saturday, May 29th.
If you are buying lots of berries to freeze, wash them and de-stem them and place them on waxed paper in the freezer (on a tray or baking sheet). Once frozen, put the berries into freezer bags; this prevents your fruit from sticking together.
