May is Strawberry Month

May is National Strawberry Month. First bred in Brittany, France, around 1740 from plants harvested in eastern North America, Chile, Argentina, the garden strawberry is known for its fragrance, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweet, sometimes tart taste. Whether eaten fresh or in prepared foods like preserves, juices, pies, ice creams, and milk shakes, it's one of the most popular fruits for young and old alike. Mark your calendar as we honor this cheerful little berry on Saturday, June 7th at 10AM. Phyllis Both will be here at the library sharing tips for growing strawberries and sharing some favorite recipes. We invite you to bring your favorite recipe to share.
