Cookery Rhymes: Curly Locks Curly Locks

Curly Locks, Curly Locks,
Will you be mine?
You shall not wash dishes,
Nor feed the swine,
But sit on a cushion,
And sew a fine seam,
And sup upon strawberries,
Sugar, and cream.

Strawberries have a history that goes back over 2,200 years. Strawberries grew wild in Italy as long ago as 234 B.C. and were discovered in Virginia by the first Europeans when their ships landed there in 1588.  The ancient Romans believed that the berries alleviated symptoms of melancholy, fainting, all inflammations, fevers, throat infections, kidney stones, halitosis, attacks of gout, and diseases of the blood, liver and spleen. Legend has it that if you break a double strawberry in half and share it with a member of the opposite sex, you will fall in love with each other. Kids learn that strawberries are delicious.

Ingredients:
Strawberries, sugar, and cream, how delicious what a dream!
