Learn how to make this Strawberry Tea Recipe using food foraged from the wild.
Strawberry tea is brewed by, first, digging the leaves from the snow and allowing them to thaw. Then drop a double handful into a teapot and cover them with boiling water. Serve with a spoon of honey. That's all there is to it.
For strawberry leaf syrup make three cups of strawberry tea and set them aside. Combine 3/4 cup of water with 6 cups of brown sugar and mix very well. Bring this mixture to a boil and boil hard for one minute. While it's hot pour it into the strawberry tea. Stir for three minutes. Cover with tight lids. This syrup, if refrigerated, will keep for three weeks.
