    strawberries

    Who doesn't love strawberries?! Bright, red, juicy and full of flavour. Although now a days they can be purchased all year round there is nothing quite like a freshly picked, English strawberry. 

    Strawberries for many epitomise summer. They transport us back to our childhood- each summer as children we would go strawberry picking, eating far more than we put in our little green cardborad punnets. Our hands would be stained with the red flesh of the strawberry and our lips tinted with a bright red lipstick - a sure tell tale sign. Happy memories.

    Strawberries and champagne, strawberries and cream, strawberries with a gentle sprinkling of sugar or just as they are- strawberries are loved by many.

    My 2 year old daughter simply can't get enough of these juicy jewels and I'm delighted. Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and K as well as providing a good dose of folic acid, magnesium, potassium and fibre. Their fibre and fructose content can help regulate blood sugar levels by slowing down digestion. They are also thought to reduce inflammatory conditions and heart disease. Rubbing a strawberry over your teeth on a regular basis is also supposed to help whiten them.

    Who would have thought that this little red gem would have so many valuable properties.

    So why not treat yourself and indulge in our new:
