iPhone and iPod touch users can now access different strawberry recipes complete with vivid food photography, ingredients and step-by-step directions to create that special dish for those around you. The app neatly categorizes recipes under Snacks & Appetizers, Breakfast, Cocktails, Main Courses, Salads and Sweets and makes it easy to access ingredient lists and instructions from places like the grocery store, the kitchen – or anywhere. Recipes range from traditional favorites, such as shortcakes and pies to more exotic dishes like strawberry dumplings, salsa and ceviche.

Individual recipes can be shared with friends, family and online networks by simply posting the recipe to Facebook or Twitter with the click of a button. Recipes can also be emailed to anyone for viewing or printing.

“I’m excited to have one of my recipes included in this app because I enjoy sharing my passion for cooking that goes all the way back to when I was in the fourth grade,” said Michael Ruhlman, food writer and blogger behind Ruhlman.com. “This is a great way to further inspire people to recognize the importance and ease of preparing good and healthy food in their own kitchens.”

Strawberries are among the healthiest and most delicious foods in the world and the STRAWBERRIES app demonstrates the varieties of ways people can enjoy them. This app is ideal for a mom looking for a snack that will delight her kids and husband, a college student looking for something impressive to bring to a party, or for anyone just trying to figure out how to get more strawberries into their daily diets.

“As the nation’s leading producer of strawberries it’s exciting to see the passion that people of all ages have for strawberries when it comes to eating them – and cooking with them,” said Mark Murai, President, California Strawberry Commission. “This app was created to help people easily share some of that passion and to help people learn new ways to eat strawberries. We appreciate all the great cooks and bloggers who contributed their recipes to help us do that.”
