Red clover is one of the world’s oldest agricultural crops, cultivated as forage since prehistoric times. The ball-shaped flowers of the three-leafed herb have been used almost as long in herbal healing. Because of its importance in early agriculture, red clover has a long history as a religious symbol. The ancient Greeks, Romans, and the Celts of pre- Christian Ireland all revered it. Early Christians linked the plant to the Trinity, and some say red clover is the model for Ireland’s symbol, the shamrock. Red clover was also the model for the suit of clubs in playing cards. During the Middle Ages, red clover was considered a charm against witchcraft. In the Far East, herbalists had more down-to-earth uses for red clover. In Victorian times, red clover signified industry. Clover cordial was a popular drink in the early days of San Francisco. Native Americans ate clover in several ways. Sometimes the foliage was eaten fresh before the plant flowered or, as among the digger tribe, it was cooked by placing moistened layers of plants one upon another in a stone oven. The Apaches boiled it with dandelions, grass, and pigweed. The Pomo tribe held special clover feats and dances in the early spring to celebrate the plant’s appearance. Country people in many places believed the red clover to have particular power to cure the bites of poisonous snakes and insects. They boiled the whole plant in water, washed the bitten place with it, then laid some of the freshly crushed leaves on the area.
Raw clover flowers are not easily digestible, especially when eaten in any quantity, but their sweet crunch is a nice addition to salad. They are excellent in salads, both green and sweet, and with vegetable dishes. It is worth picking the florets off individually to get the best flavor. Make sure that they have no green whatsoever attached to them. Scatter them over a salad or vegetable dish just before serving. Add them late in cooking to cheese, egg, rice and vegetable dishes and in soups and stews.
