Don’t you love this time of the year when a great variety of produce is so plentiful? We have all heard that buying produce in season is thrifty, but do you go a little overboard at your local Farmer’s Market when buying them—realizing once you’re home that they may go bad before you can eat them all?!  I’ve got the perfect fresh strawberry bars recipe as well as other fresh storing tips for the season!

Thrifty Little Mom has once again partnered with My Symphony Seasonings, LLC to bring you some easy storing tips and recipes to make the most of your summer crop!

Tips for keeping your fruit fresher longer:

  • Peruse your bounty and use the overly ripened or bruised fruit first-these berries are perfect to use for cooking or baking.
  • Any strawberries that you will eat right away should be given a vinegar bath (1 cup white distilled vinegar to 4 cups of water) to kill bacteria, salmonella, mold spores and remove pesticides.
  • Dry any washed produce thoroughly by air drying on a clean dishtowel or gently wiping dry more delicate fruit.
  • Do not wash any fruit that you will not use right away, but rather store them in a clean and completely dried glass jar with a lid in your refrigerator.

Directions:

To make the dressing, blend oil, vinegar, honey, lime juice & strawberries until smooth. Add Provincial Life, shake and refrigerate. To assemble the salad, give all produce a quick vinegar bath as suggested earlier. Place salad greens in a bowl giving a quick chop if desired then add sliced strawberries. Toast almond slivers carefully-in the toaster oven is easiest with the door slightly ajar for a short period of time and watching carefully. Allow nuts to cool and toss into salad. Mix Provincial Life with goat cheese creating seasoned crumbles then add to the salad. Drizzle dressing and enjoy. Blessings!
