Victorian Strawberries Season is almost upon us…
If you worship the Gods of All Things Delicious then, thankfully, it’s almost that time of year again… time to get your fix of berry heavenly Victorian Strawberries. Once again, from November to May, the plump and juicy heart-shaped berries you know and love will be ready to tickle your strawberry-loving tastebuds.
Carefully and lovingly grown by nearly 100 strawberry farms around the state of – you guessed it – Victoria, 27 million strawberry plants nestled in rich, fertile soil will together produce more than 25,000 tonnes of the highly coveted ruby-red berry to meet demand.
Just some of the ways you might like to make the most of your Victorian Strawberries this season include: a nutritious wake-up Smoothie Bowl filled to the brim with chopped strawberries; Traditional Pavlova topped with whole plump strawberries, perfect to celebrate Christmas Day or Australia Day; and Strawberry Crumble Bars – easy for desserts with a generous dollop of cream and for a lovely lunch box snack. Or for something more exotic, how about a Strawberry and Green Tomato Tart with Parmesan Crust? You’ll find these scrumptious recipes – and many more – ready and waiting for you under the recipes section on the MarketFresh website or see links below:
And they don’t only taste delightful – Victorian Strawberries are good for you too! Low in natural sugars and with low GI, strawberries are loaded with all the good stuff, including antioxidants and anthocyanins (which may help to reduce the risk of heart disease, mental decline and inflammation). They’re even fat-free.
