Seasonal Spotlight: Strawberries

With their deep crimson colour and juicy sweet flavour, it's not hard to see why strawberries have been renowned throughout history as an aphrodisiac. In fact, in Ancient Rome, strawberries were a symbol of Venus (the goddess of love) because they were seen as so enticing and irresistible!  

Apart from their obvious deliciousness, strawberries also gain points on the health scale, because they're incredibly high in vitamin C and are packed full of antioxidants.

These tasty berries are in season all year round in Australia, but flourish particularly well towards the end of winter, coming into Spring. Here at The Pantry Manly, we love adding strawberries to our seasonal fruit plate for a pop of colour and flavour!
