Strawberry Stems and Leaves
Should you eat them? Yes! They are full of strawberry flavor. Wash hulled tops well, then use them to infuse a pitcher of ice water for a few minutes, a bottle of vinegar for a few hours or your favorite booze for a couple of days. You can even dry strawberry leaves and steep them in hot water for tea. Use un-hulled strawberries in smoothies to get an extra dose of nutritious greens. I do make smoothies every day and until now I have hulled the strawberries and tossed the stems and leaves without even giving it a second thought…until now. What a wonderful way to get more greens into your diet!
