Cole Extension Home Economist North Mississippi County At best, homegrown strawberry harvest for fresh market has been greatly reduced by days and torrents of rain. Both strawberry quality and quantity are highly dependent on weather, and equally changeable If on some days, you haven't found the brightness, crispness and flavor that characterized our first homegrown ones, remember that our producers and grocers were disappointed before you were. Constant rain in growing areas can only mean water - logged berries but sunshine does wonders to restore quality to this fast are not only growing fruit, Strawberries good, -they are good for us. A half cup of strawberries, provides about two-thirds of the Vitamin C needs of a well adult •with only 28 calories. If you wish to sweeten your berries with one of the artificial sweet- you've won half the battle of getting all the flavor delight of this highly perishable fruit. The other half depends on the care you give them. Buy no more berries than you can use within a day or two and see that they aren't spilled or mashed in your grocery bag. When you get the berries home, pour them carefully in shallow pans or trays. Remove any that are spoiled. If they have reached the desired stage of ripeness, store them unwashed in the refrigerator in a tightly covered container. If some need further ripening, spread those out at room temperature until they are red all over; then refrigerate. - Just before using, wash berries gently and quickly in a bowl of cold water or under running water. If berries stand in water, they lose color and flavor. When you're preparing several quarts for preserving, an effective be'rry washing consist of holding the box, as one of the artuiciai swrei- hased under runnmg wate r :, add the sweetener just £ flughes Ucleg of eners, — . at serving time. Texture changes as berries stand after sweetener is added. ' * * * When you buy strawberries, you'll get the finest flavor if you choose those that look clean and bright, with dry glossy surfaces. If they are all to be served Immediately, it is important that they have an overall red color, though bright glossy berries that are part red and part pink when they are purchased will continue to ripen at room temperature. Big berries have much eye appeal and take less time to prepare than little ones. However, small ones of the same, quality taste just as good as large ones, and may give a larger yield. Berries with dull surfaces, soft spots or decay are not only likely to give low yields, they are also usually off-flavor. This flushes away particle dirt. Leaves and stems can be removed as the berries are capped.
