Nutrition & fun facts

  • We call strawberries “berries” but really they’re something called an “accessory fruit.” Accessorize your next meal with them!
  • The average American eats more than 3 pounds of fresh strawberries each year. How does your family stack up?
  • Kids love strawberries in all forms, and the fruit is loaded with vitamin C. If berry juice has stained clothing or upholstery, white vinegar is a good first step in getting the red out.

Nutrition & fun facts

  • Like onions and garlic, asparagus is a member of the lily family. Under ideal conditions, an asparagus spear can grow 10" in a single day.
  • Thick or thin stalks are just a matter of personal preference. Snap the ends off instead of cutting them, to avoid every bit of toughness.
  • The Germans have an excellent word for asparagus season: Spargelzeit! The town of Schrobenhausen even has the Spargelmuseum, known in English as the European Asparagus Museum.
