Mache has been cultivated in France since the 17th century, and in France it is known as doucette. It is also known as "lamb's lettuce" because its leaves resemble the size and shape of a lamb's tongue.
It is the only lettuce type that does not occur in red form as well as green. Iceberg is the given name to dozens of cultivars of lettuce, all of which are adapted to specific planting regions and time periods.

Stem strawberries are available year round with their peak season in the spring.
The genus Fragaria is from the Latin name "fraga", referring to the fragrance of the fruit. "Strawberry" is an English word which refers to this fruit's erratic straying habit.
Stem strawberries are a vibrant red color and have their bright, green tops and stems attached. Size is not a factor in determining flavor. Use berries whole to preserve their appearance and for easy serving.
An excellent source of vitamin C, eight strawberries contain about 50 calories and are a good source of fiber.
Serve stem strawberries whole and intact. Add to fruit and cheese platters. Melt chocolate in a double boiler, dip whole strawberries in chocolate and cool. Hull strawberries, use a mellon-balled to removed a section inside each berry, then fill with sweetened cream cheese, dip in chocolate, cool and serve. Do not wash until ready to use. To store, keep in container or lie in a single layer between paper towels on a tray; refrigerate. For optimum quality and flavor, use within one to three days after purchase.
In England, fresh cream is the traditional accompaniment for this beloved berry. Sour cream is preferred elsewhere in Europe. Offering its subtle acidity, the French creme fraiche, to some, is considered best of all.
Although all strawberries are picked by hand, stem strawberries require much more attention and time. Runners produced on the strawberry plant are carefully cut in order to leave a long stem on the strawberry. Large premium berries are picked for stem varieties. A major producer, California grows nearly eighty-three percent of the strawberries for the marketplace in the United States. The season begins in southern California in January and continues through November in northern California. April, May and June are peak strawberry months.
