Strawberry Tea Recipe

strawberry teaStrawberry tea has a long history of use as both a medicinal drink and as a tasty relaxation help.  This strawberry tea recipe is fairly simple, but there are a few things worthy of mention before you go and make your own fresh strawberry tea.

First, a few noteworthy nutritional facts.  Strawberry leaves have a long history of use as an herbal remedy for diarrhea, especially in children.  Additionally, methyl salicylate, the active pain inhibitor in aspirin is contained in strawberry leaves in trace amounts.  Perhaps most noteworthy is the fact that strawberry leaves contain up to 75 times the amount of the anti-angiogenic compound ellagic acid as do the fruits.  On the low end, strawberries contain around 430 parts per million (ppm) of ellagic acid and can contain as much as 8,430 ppm.  The leaves of the strawberry plant, however, will contain between 8,080 ppm and 32,300 ppm.  So, just as it may be possible to prevent cancer by eating strawberries, it may also be even more beneficial to drink strawberry tea made from freshly picked leaves.

Second, a cautionary tale.  It is widely noted that strawberry leaves need to be used either immediately after picking or after the leaves have completely dried due to a “toxin” that is formed when the leaf loses its life support and begins to whither.  This mild toxin can irritate the stomach and cause general discomfort.  While verified by multiple anecdotes, the true cause of the gastric disturbances is not scientifically verifiable at present.  It is more likely that the environmental microorganisms and fungi that participate in the withering process are to blame for any problems, not the leaves themselves.  However, with that said, it is still best to wait until the leaves are completely dry and crumble easily before using (if they aren't going to be used fresh).

A Strawberry Plants .org Freezer Jam Tip!

strawberry freezer jam tipHopefully, your strawberry plants produced abundantly this year and will for many years to come.  One of the favorite strawberry-related summer traditions is the production of strawberry freezer jam.  Making freezer jam is an art in its own right, but this tip can help you be a successful (and healthy) canner of jams.

Strawberry freezer jam is considered to be a member of the strawberry preserves family, and the instructions for preserving are quite important to follow carefully to ensure that the canned freezer jam won't pose a health risk to those who consume it later.  However, when instructions are given, it is important to factor in the altitude at which the cans will be be boiled (in a water bath canner).

As altitude increases, pressure decreases.  When atmospheric pressure decreases, the boiling point of water decreases.  This means that water will boil at a lower temperature.  Since high, bacteria-killing temperatures are required to ensure that the substances being canned are safe to store, water must be boiled for longer periods at high altitudes to ensure the same effect that boiling at lower altitudes achieves in less time.  So, here is what you need to know:

A Strawberry Plants .org Strawberry Jam Tip!

strawberry jam tipDid your strawberry plants produce abundant strawberries this year?  Hopefully so!  Whether you grow your own, go strawberry picking, or buy them at the store, many people take time to prepare enough strawberry jam to last them through the winter until spring brings revived strawberry plants and another harvest.

While strawberry jam is considered to be a member of the strawberry preserves family, it is not quite the same as a fine wine or expensive cheese.  Strawberry jam has a limited shelf life.  Eating strawberry jam that is a decade old will likely be hazardous to your health.  In fact, I wouldn't recommend eating strawberry jam that has been on the shelf for five years.

But, there is one simple (and a little bit fun) tip that can extend the life of your canned strawberry jam quite a bit.  Used with this strawberry jam recipe, your spring strawberries can satisfy your palate for quite while!  I'll give you a hint: the strawberry jam tip involves a fiery furnace…
