Why are the ones at the grocery store SO HUGE? Look at those little beauties up there. They are delicious. Sweet. Good. The ones from the grocery store that we buy most of the year here in Minnesota are from Driscoll’s. They claim they aren’t genetically modified (http://www.driscolls.com/berries/strawberries), but how couldn’t they be? They are ginormous. Taste-less. Blech. Honestly, there is no comparison.
Do you go to your local farmer’s market? If not, you should.
I came out of there with kohlrabi, broccoli, fresh lettuce, tomatoes (Do NOT even get me started on the taste difference between a real tomato and a grocery store tomato!), cucumbers, yukon gold baby potatoes, corn, strawberries, and honey sticks (for the boys) for under $20. All organic. Fresh. Yummy.
Sliced cukes, diced kohlrabi, red onion, tomatoes, corn (fresh not cooked), a little feta, splash of EVOO and red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Yum!
