strawberries - some kind of queen of the fruits

 

Strawberries are available in all summer month. They have a wonderful sweet flavor and can be combined with other soft fruits, such as blackberries and raspberries. The strawberry is a „false“ fruit, because from the botanical point, the strawberry is not really a berry, it belongs to the collective nut fruit. The small seeds are actually the fruit and not the red pulp around them. The delicious fruit can be used in many ways (salads, pies, jams) and contains hardly any calories, but a lot of vitamin C. Strawberries are suitable as an ingredient for puddings, cottage cheese, cakes, ice cream and cocktails. There are numerous different ways.
