It's strawberry season! You Know it's generally not known that strawberries are in the same family of the rose flower and are really not considered a fruit. The strawberry plant belongs to the same family of roses, genus Fragraria, together with other fruits such as apples and plums. 

Strawberries as we know them today are a hybrid of different species, specifically selected by breeders during the centuries to yield more crop, with a better taste and a more nutritious profile.
In addition to having a very important nutritional value, with an abundance of antioxidants like anthocyanins, strawberries have been used for centuries as symbols of purity and longevity and depending on cultures were believed to prolong life. Strawberries have a long history of medical uses.The Romans for instance used them to alleviate symptoms of fainting, kidney stones, inflammation, diseases of the blood, liver and spleen, throat infections, bad breath, attacks of gout, melancholy and fever. In Belgium there's a museum entirely dedicated to strawberries Strawberries are grown in every state in the United States and every province of Canada. In some places of Bavaria, country folk practice a spring ritual of tying small baskets of wild strawberries to the horns of their cattle as an offering to wood elves. The legend states that the elves, who love strawberries, will offer their gratitude producing healthy calves and an abundance of milk

 Strawberries were a symbol of perfection and love: for instance, folklore says that if you split a double strawberry in half and share it with a member of the opposite sex, you'll soon fall in love. Medieval stonemasons carved strawberry designs on altars and around the tops of pillars in sacred places such as churches, as a symbol of perfection.


If you haven't ever had champagne and strawberries ...Why are you living? you're missing out on one of the most intoxicating sexist expeiences of your life!

And if you have never eaten chocolate or whipcremed dipped strawberries with a lover, check your pulse you may be dead...

But if all that sexiness still doesn't interest you put on your jeans go down to the local organic farm and pick up a couple of fresh baskets.  Fill yourself a big bowl of strawberries and whip cream with maybe some short cake or even whip up a strawberry shake, or parfait! Then how about some pancakes...
