A native of the coastal dunes of Florida and Texas, Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) has been an important food source for the local Indian populations. Native Americans have long consumed the fruit of this palm, harvested honey from its flowers, and the fan-like leaves also made serviceable brooms. The palm-heart or terminal bud of the Saw Palmetto makes an excellent salad or cooked vegetable. In addition, all parts of the plant are known for their health properties, some of which were borrowed by European settlers. A number of recent studies suggest that extracts of the plant may be beneficial in the management of specific health concerns.
The best way to make a good cup of tea is by the infusion method. Place one tea bag in a cup and add no more than 6 oz of boiling water. Let steep for 3 minutes. Press the bag before removing to enhance the flavor.
