Buying strawberries or picking them at a strawberry patch? Here’s what you should know about how to use strawberries.

These heart-shaped gems should not have any pale green or white tops or tips. Buy them red. Eat them red.

When visiting a berry patch, pick the ripest berries. If you have to tug at them, they are not ready. Berries don’t ripen after picking like some fruits.

Remember that strawberries are porous. They absorb water like a sponge.

Gently rinse them just before eating. Refrigerate them until that quick rinse.

Eat them with a little powdered sugar, agave nectar or your sweetener of choice, or enjoy them by themselves. Rest assured that there are several health benefits of eating strawberries.
