Strawberry Fields for Dinner!
The strawberry, Fragaria, is one of the most popular berry fruits in the world.
But did you know...strawberries are not actually fruits as their seeds are on the outside. They are a fleshy receptacle (yes, that's the actual term) for the seeds, which are the actual fruit of the strawberry. Strawberry plants are runners, and are not produced by seeds. They have an average of 200 seeds per fruit and are actually a member of the rose (rosaceae) family. Wow!
Tonite we'll turn those fleshy receptacles into delicious dishes that go beyond just srtawberries and cream. You'll sample...
Baby Greens with Strawberries & Balsamic Bleu Cheese Dressing,
Strawberry Chipotle Beef Ribs,
Tequila Lime Tilapia Tacos with Strawberry Salsa,
Individual Chocolate-Strawberry Cobblers

Elderflower Rose Gimlet
