Florida’s growing season is here and Fresh From Florida Strawberries are on the way! Our strawberry season begins in December and runs through April, so be on the lookout over the next few months for this delicious winter treat. Because of Florida’s moderate year-round temperatures: when you’re snowing – we’re growing.
We’ve come up with delicious recipes that include our Florida Strawberries like these Meatballs with a Florida Strawberry and Sweet Chili Sauce. This healthy take on a classic meatball recipe adds fresh veggies then is tossed with Florida strawberries, plus mint, and finished with a sweet chili sauce. They’ll be great for your next party appetizer, or a new snack for the family!
