White strawberries… What do you think? They look wrong, right?
For years I’ve resisted buying these strawberries, because who would want to eat white strawberries… They look downright wrong to me… Like they’re unripe… Most likely sour… So I thought.
Until I bit into one. Guess what?! They’re actually sweeter than their luscious-looking red counterparts. Who would have thought?
It goes to show you need to be open-minded when it comes to anything new or unusual. I’m not sure how new these white strawberries are, actually. I’ve seen them around for several years now. But I was never interested in them before because let’s face it, they’re not as attractive as the red ones.
Now that I know they taste good, however, I’m going to see if I can grow them myself. They’re pretty hard to find; I only see them at specialty markets occasionally.
I will shock the husband on Valentine’s Day by serving Red Velvet Shortcake with White Strawberries, shh…

“This is right up my alley… noodles… kimchi… yum! As long as the kimchi is not too, too spicy. I’ll still eat it, though. Just make sure there’s a box of tissue and a big glass of milk.” — Angie
“This is seriously mouthwatering! The caramelized onion, melty Swiss cheese, thousand island dressing, and seasoned ground beef in a sandwich – I mean, it’s difficult to resist!” — Jhuls
“Good old Mu Shu… I haven’t had it in… like forever! It’s time to get reacquainted. And this easy recipe is the ticket!” — Angie
