February marks the month of many celebrations, from the significant (Black History Month, Library Lovers Month, National Condom Month) to the less-so but equally mentionable (Return Your Shopping Carts to the Supermarket Month, Marijuana Awareness Month, and National Wedding Month.)

For foodies, buried in the middle of all of these honors, you'll find Florida Strawberry Month. It's often outshined by the gleam of the Florida citrus Industry, but the strawberry is still considered the most popular berry fruit in the world. Now as we close in on the end of the month, Johnson and Wales University's Chef Alan Bergman shares some strawberry-centric recipes to create. Not to worry if you miss the February deadline; the season lasts through April.

So sad that Strawberry Month is over! Now, I use freeze dried strawberries from freezedriedsafety.com. These have no added sugar so they're just like natural (but you can have them all year round!) They are similar to Special K Strawberries and I think they will reconstitute when you add water!
