How to prepare
Just before using wash strawberries with caps attached. Use a small sharp knife for removing the green caps. Good for eating out of hand, in salads or in desserts.
What to look for
Select strawberries that are plump, fresh looking and bright in colour with bright green caps. Size does not indicate quality; the largest are not necessarily the most falvourful.
