Known for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, and distinct sweetness, the garden strawberry is a widely grown fruit native to France. Our freeze-dried strawberries pair well with mint, ginger, chocolate, and other citrus flavors.
Strawberries are indigenous to both the northern and southern hemispheres. They are first mentioned in the writings of Cato, a famed Roman Senator. In the 12th Century, however, they were declared unfit to eat. The reason given? Strawberries grow too close to the ground and are contaminated by the snakes and toads that may have touched them. Thankfully, this proscription had since been lifted, and strawberries are safe (and legal) to eat once again.
