Strawberries are synonymous with spring, and that’s why May is the perfect month to celebrate them.

Fresh strawberries are the first fruit to ripen each spring, and can be used in recipes from breakfast to dessert. Some of our favorites include Strawberry and Bacon Stuffed French Toast, Grilled Pork Chops with Strawberry Chutney, Theo’s Strawberry Chicken, Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshakes and Strawberry Sheet Cake. Florida is a leading producer of strawberries, and thanks to their warm climate, can grow them year round.

Load up the family and pick your own fresh berries at farms across the country to make the recipes above. But before you go, brush up on strawberry facts with the infographic below, and share on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
