Strawberries - Sooo Fresh! Lolly and Liquor

Honestly,I do not understand, how is it possible that the English language does not distinguish these two fruits: strawberries wild and cultivated. Those are two different fruits with two different tastes. They have to grow as native in UK forests... Why they have not two different names???? I do not understand. My dictionaries say, both have the same name, strawberries...

Look here, those are similar but different fruits:

Well, in any case, if you like them, you can try these two recipes this summer:

1 ice lolly 

250 g of cultivated strawberries and 200 g of water whip together.
add juice of 1 lemon and 100 g of sugar (I would not add them)
leave it in the fridge for an hour
Than put it in the little forms, add sticks and put them in your freezer.

2 wild strawberries and cream liquor 

200 g water, 200 g sugar, 1 sp honey and cinnamon bring to boiling point. Make it cold.
filter and add to 200 g of wild strawberries. Gently mix them, cover with plastic and leave in fridge for a night.
Whip it and filter, than put the liquid in a sterile bottle, add alcohol 200 g and cover the bottle.
Cream and vanillin bring to boiling point. Make it cold.
Add it to strawberries in the bottle and plug the bottle.

ATTENTION! All the liquors with cream have to be conserved in fridge once opened and consumed as quickly as possible.
