Strawberry Field

Last weekend I went to Cipanas and there's one particular experience I want to share. Strawberries picking in Green Apple Garden. For just Rp.5000 per person you can pick your own strawberries, and we picked the reddest of them all and for the first time I believe Strawberries can be sweet.

Previously, I bought strawberries in many countries that claimed to be sweet, yet all turns out sours, except for these lovely hand picked strawberries. For a clean freak like me, many times I accidentally (on purpose) eat them on the spot, they are ripe and juicy. Do you know strawberry can be use as a teeth cleanser and whitener (combine with baking soda) naturally. Any stains from coffee, tea, wine, dark colored sodas, etc are gone. And Strawberries are a good source of Folate and Potassium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C and Manganese (Source)

For Rp50.000 per KG you can bring home your own strawberries and enjoy. My tips would be: sun protection during strawberry picking such as sunblock, umbrella (not practical), hats, etc, long pants to cover yourself from bugs (not many but still there), preferably water resistant shoes aka boots, non slip shoes, and a good pair of eyes to see those lovely red berries ^0^ and they are organic woo hoo!

Imagine them on top of oat pancakes / oat crepes, a dish that will earn points for your heart or smoothies mixed with oats? Yums! BTW, have you join Sayangi jantungmu on Facebook or just open their website and get free tips, recipes, and have a heart check!
