Expert Tips

To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350°F oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.

Strawberries act like little sponges, soaking up surrounding moisture. To keep their fresh flavor intact, clean strawberries by gently rubbing with damp paper towel.
