strawberry romantic

It's Valentines Day, and while we're all getting loved up in Fruit Towers, it seems that some fruits have love stories of their own. 

Everyone knows that chocolate dipped strawberries are pretty romantic, but our love affair with these heart (or bottom) shaped fruits goes back to Medieval England and rural France, where strawberries have historically been served at wedding breakfasts alongside borage. Borage is a beautiful plant with young leaves and pretty, blue, edible star-shaped flowers that taste like sweet cucumber and honey. The reason borage is served with strawberries at weddings is because of the way both plants help each other grow when they're planted in the soil together. And they taste delicious together with some soured cream and a dusting of icing sugar. True love indeed. 

 

love, love me do
