JPE's wine barrel strawberry patch ~ 5/18/11
JPE made a OVER a GALLON of Strawberry Jam this past weekend!! 

We get our jam berries (smaller & oddly shaped) from Okui's in Arroyo Grande. Their berries are as big as apricots & juicy ~ you need to eat them over the sink. You can read the YELP reviews HERE!

A couple of reasons to eat strawberries:
  • Strawberries are low fat, low calorie; high in vitamin C, fiber, folic acid, potassium (way tastier than swallowing a handful of vitamins)
  • One eight-ounce cup of strawberries is about 55 calories (great news!!)
  • Strawberries are second only to blueberries when it comes to antioxidants in fruits (I'm a "red" lover, sorry "blue")
  • Strawberries are rich in fiber (anyone else appreciate being "regular"?) 
Have you had your strawberries today?
