Here is some more info on strawberries
Selection, Storage and Handling

Pick 'em Right
Look for strawberries that are plump, bright red in color and have fresh green caps.

Keep 'em Cool
To maintain flavor, store strawberries loosely covered and unwashed in the refrigerator. Just before eating, rinse with cool water.

I'm going to continue my endeavor for organic strawberries, but no luck yet. I know tomatoes, and cucumbers taste so much better. I would probably love the berries. They are my new weakness, anyway. I would rather have them than chocolate.

Believe it or not, I live in Florida, just outside of Plant City, the strawberry capital, and haven't found organic strawberries anywhere. I bet they taste alot better than the regular ones don't they?
