Billion Dollar Strawberries

The other day my wife, Dorit, came home and said "no billion dollar strawberries for us this week." We have recently decided only to get organic strawberries, because they are on the dirty dozen list.
There are many versions of the "dirty dozen" list of fruits and vegetables out there ... these are the lists of produce that have significant pesticide residue even if you wash them. The suggestion is that you can focus your organic purchasing on these products to get the best bang for your green green (green=organic green=money, get it?).

Strawberries ALWAYS make it onto this list. They, like other berries, suck up what is around them and on them, and have, apparently, higher pesticide residues.

No billion dollar strawberries this week, or any other week... I guess.
