Fresh Strawberries

Fresh Strawberries

Don’t these strawberries look so amazing!?!  Such a vibrant red, I love the way they look with their bright green stems, I took a ridiculous amount of pictures of these beauties!  We bought 4 large flats of them, we ate one flat and froze the other three.  We love freezing fresh picked strawberries because when it’s cold and snowy here in the winter and fresh local strawberries are just a distant memory, we can take out some frozen strawberries and toss them in our morning shake!  It’s a good feeling knowing  that our frozen strawberries are organic…we used to buy bags of regular frozen strawberries but now that we now that strawberries are included in the Environmental Working Group’s dirty dozen list we ensure that we only eat organic ones!

Freezing Strawberries is easy:

1.  Rinse Strawberries

2.  Trim the stems off

3.  Let them dry

4.  Place on lined baking sheet (tips pointing up) make sure to give space around each strawberry so they don’t freeze together!

5.  After 5 -6 hours place the frozen strawberries in a freezer bag or container

Converting to Organic Food

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

If your considering converting to the organic food movement, here are a few things to keep in mind when you hit the grocery store.  Always look for the USDA Certified stamp, sticker, or symbol.  Keep in mind that meats will have this too.  The meat section of the supermarket often has chicken and cow meat that is hormone free and the animal is fed only pesticide free food to sustain life.  I would also suggest converting a little at a time, instead of all at once so that it wont be such a shock to your lifestyle.  The kiddies have to get used to it!  Make it fun for them too.  Make colorful veggies into caterpillars or artwork, you can find many recipes here on Green Halloween!

I love Life, I love Organic

Buying organic foods from your local farmer's market is a safe bet!
