Here is your strawberry challenge:
- Organic strawberries are in my price range when they are $2.99/lb.
- Conventional strawberries are in my price range when they are $.99 or lower per pound.
- If fresh strawberries are not on sale, I opt for frozen ones. Based on this website, frozen food (and canned) contain less residue than fresh.
- I do still buy strawberries at higher prices, I just buy less. They went on sale for $.97/lb a few days a go, so I bought 4 pounds...I would have bought them at $2.00/lb, but I would have purchased only one pound.
