Sassafras Leaves

Nature Walks

The sassafras tree is very interesting, for it produces multiple types of leaves on the same tree. Each leave can have one, two, or three lobes. They are also slightly fuzzy. The roots were an important item for trade between early America and the old world because they made a tasty drink, and the leaves are used in some styles of cooking, though I have no recipes to offer.
