Recipes with Rose: 'Berry' Fresh Strawberry Honey Sauce

Every year, May 20 marks National Pick Strawberries Day. The holiday falls during mid-May when strawberries are at their prime. National Pick Strawberries Day usually falls around the time of many state strawberry festivals and farmers' market events where you can sample delicious ripe strawberries and even pick your own. Make sure to check out events going on in your area!
Even if you can't pick your own this National Pick Strawberries Day, we hope you'll buy some of nature's tasty ruby red jewels at your local farmers' market or supermarket (we recommend organic). Eat them straight out of the carton, or create tastebud-pleasing recipes. Read more tips on picking, washing and using strawberries here.
One of our favorite strawberry recipes is a "Berry" Fresh Strawberry Honey Sauce. Satisfy your sweet tooth with this berrylicious sauce that can be used as a spread or dessert topping -- especially on National Strawberry Sundae Day, which will be here before you know it on July 7!
