With strawberries showing up in the market now, how do you know what to look for? Here are some tips on choosing, storing and using berries, courtesy of Food Editor Russ Parsons: Choose the best berries by aroma, not color or size.

Easy Pork Chop Saute can be made in just minutes and slices of sauteed bananas make it irresistible. Cooking bananas lightly in a hot skillet gives them an entirely new character. Combining with chops that were simmered in a curry powder, cumin and orange juice mixture, adds an exotic touch. Choose firm bananas with a hint of green at the tip for cooking.
