Strawberries are one of the most popular types of fruit. Sweet, juicy and delicious it is good just eaten on its own, or as an addition to all sorts of recipes. The first garden strawberry was grown in Brittany, France during the late 18th century. Before this, wild strawberries and cultivated strawberry varieties from wild strawberry species were the common sources of the fruit. The strawberry is a fruit that was first mentioned in ancient Roman literature talking about its medicinal use. The French began taking the strawberry plant from the forests to their gardens for harvest in the 1300s. France's King from 1364 to 1380, Charles V, had over 1,200 strawberry plants in his royal garden. In the early 1400s, monks from western Europe were using the wild strawberry in their illuminated manuscripts. The strawberry can also be found in Italian, Flemish, German art, and English miniatures. The entire strawberry plant was also used to treat depressive illnesses.

Shaved ice recipes go a lot further back than you might expect. The first documented shaved ice recipe was made in 27 B.C.E. The Roman Emperor Nero sent his slaves to collect snow from the nearby mountains which he then flavored with a mixture of fruit and honey. In imperial Japan, shaved ice was a treat that was reserved only for royalty, as it was a recipe made of natural ice that was formed during the coldest period of winter, which was then stored in icehouses. This made the recipe very rare, and a luxury that was only available to the Heian nobles, regular people could not afford it. As the Japanese people immigrated to Hawaii, they brought this traditional recipe with them. Similar to Rome and Japan, in Hawaii, there are warm areas that are close enough to the snow-capped mountains so that snow can be brought down to the warmer areas without melting. In Canada and the United States, shaved ice is commonly known as Snow cones or "Snowballs, the recipe consists of crushed or shaved ice that is then topped with sweet fruit flavored syrup. Within the United States, there are several regional variations that are prominent. In New Orleans snowballs can include a topping of fruit flavored syrup or a fruit-cream syrup mixture, and in Baltimore snowballs are often made with a fruit flavored syrup and are then topped with marshmallow cream.
