Fresh Strawberries

All About Strawberries

Strawberries are one of the most widely consumed berries, but are not actually berries. In fact, strawberries are in a classification of their own call “accessories fruits” because their seeds are on the outside. Learn all about strawberries nutrition, how to store them, and our favorite strawberry recipes below.

Nutrition
Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C and manganese which aid in the repair and healing of body tissue and collagen. They are also rich in antioxidants which help prevent heart disease. Overall, strawberries, whether they be consumed raw or in jam form, are low in fat and high in water and carbohydrates. Not to mention, they taste great! On average, a single strawberry contains 32 calories and is mostly made of water.

How to store
Enjoy your strawberries, and general berries, longer by keeping them cold. The cold will help keep the mold away. The best way to store strawberries is unwashed in a breathable container in the fridge. When you’re ready to eat or cook with your strawberries, be sure to wash them and remove the stem.

Get your grill on this weekend with a perfect burger

It’s finally starting to warm up and you know what that means– grilling season! When you’re craving a giant, home-made juicy hamburger, look no further than our meat department. Our ground beef is the best. If you’re grilling up some burgers this week, remember to stop by and use these handy grilling tips:

It doesn’t need to be lean
For a juicy hamburger, select a higher fat percentage in your meat. (Don’t be afraid, most of the fat cooks off onto the grill.) This will only help prevent you from having a dry hamburger patty.

Make a large patty
Don’t be afraid to create a large-and-in-charge hamburger patty. Hamburger will always shrink once fully cooked on the grill so be generous.

Use seasonings
Use plenty of salt and pepper, as well as a nice beef seasoning. If you’d like advice on a savory hamburger seasoning, be sure to talk with one of our friendly butchers. They know what’s best and can give you plenty of suggestions!

Only flip your burger once
A grill master knows that the best hamburgers are only flipped once. Flipping your burgers too much will result in a loss of juice.

Don’t press your burger
Never press your hamburger patty with your spatula. As you squish your patty, the delicious juices that help make your hamburger scrumptious are falling into the grill.

Use a meat thermometer
Once your meat thermometer reads 160 and meat juices are clear, you are safe to take your patty off the grill and enjoy them with your family.
