Break out your six-quart bas­ket –

IT’S TIME FOR SUM­MER BERRIES.

When straw­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries, rasp­ber­ries and black­ber­ries are at their peak, abun­dant in back­yards and at you pick farms across the coun­try, take ad­van­tage! In­cor­po­rate as many into your daily meals as pos­si­ble. Packed with nu­tri­ents and fi­bre, and low in calo­ries, berries of all kinds are per­fect for pack­ing in pic­nic bas­kets, toss­ing into sal­ads and turn­ing into smooth­ies. Store them in the fridge with a pa­per towel to ab­sorb ex­cess mois­ture, or freeze in a sin­gle layer, then trans­fer to freezer bags for longer stor­age.
