Wrenshall News: Pick, eat and savor
July 3, 2020
The Friday morning “Backyard Almanac” segment on Duluth’s public radio station KUMD last week included a recipe for one of my favorite fruits — the strawberry.
Wild strawberries, while quite a bit smaller than their commercial cousin, are a fruit packed with sweetness. “Fragaria virginiana” is its scientific name, and they grow as a perennial in a variety of habitats — in dry open fields, woodland edges and along roadsides.
The recipe was this:
1. Pick the strawberry.
2. Put the strawberry in your mouth.
I tested it myself and I can attest that the recipe is perfect.
