Helpful hints

    • Try stuffed strawberries at your next party or potluck. Your guests are sure to love this one.
    • Strawberries are a very low carbohydrate fruit. That’s why 2 large strawberries are counted as zero carbohydrate choices and only 1/4 serving of fruit.
    • One large strawberry is 1-3/8” diameter, not to be confused with extra large strawberries, 1-5/8” diameter. Twenty-four large strawberries is approximately one pound.
