STRAWBERRIES - Kosher/Gluten Free

STRAW-5

Description:

Strawberries are a member of the rose family and are unique in that they are the only fruit with seeds on the outside rather than the inside. Although not botanically classified as a berry, they are considered one of the most important small fruits grown in the Western Hemisphere. Rich in vitamin C and a good source of folic acid, Strawberries are also high in fiber. Cultivated by the Romans as early as 200 BC, strawberries were regarded as an aphrodisiac. The Native American Indians were eating strawberries when the Colonists first arrived. Known worldwide for their exceptional taste, intense sweetness and striking color, Strawberries are used in jams, jellies, syrups, pastries, ice cream, yogurt, beverages, and salads and as a garnish. Dried Strawberries are convenient for use when fresh fruit is not available.

Ingredient Statement:

Strawberries, Sugar, Ascorbic Acid, Sunflower Oil.

Dried Strawberries can be used in pastries, granola, muffins, ice cream, yogurt, pancakes, pilaf and scones. Mix with other dried fruits and nuts to create your own trail mix, mixed with hot cereal for a breakfast treat. Toss with rice and other grains and fruit for a delightful summer salad.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

There is no preparation needed for dried fruit. If used in baking, you may want to rehydrate. To rehydrate dried fruit, pour boiling water over the fruit and let sit covered for 5 to 10 minutes. Drain well before using.
