Red clover is one of my favorite herbs to use. Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is often thought to be a weed since it has the tendency to show up in unkempt areas like roadsides and empty lots. Since it tends to grow wild, it’s easy for me to find on my foraging walks. It is a perennial plant and is a member of the legume family. It’s often used as a cover crop or grazing crop and helps to improve the soil.
Truth is, red clover has a ton of wonderful uses! Red clover is high in many vitamins and minerals and it has a long history of uses in herbal healthcare. Also, the flowers are edible and make a lovely garnish for desserts.
