Wild/Woodland Strawberry

While working out in the yard today, my daughter and I found a little treat - some wild strawberries.

Wild strawberries typically have a much stronger and sweeter flavor than the domesticated versions and are highly nutritious containing iron, potassium, calcium, sodium and high contents of vitamin C. And not only are the berries edible, but also the stems and the stalks. You could also make a tea out of the leaves by placing about two handfuls of the fresh green leaves into about a quart of boiling water; allow to steep for about five minutes and then serve with some fresh lemon juice or some sweetener.

 

Fun Fact:  Wild Strawberries are a part of the Rose (Rosaceae) Family.
