Purslane

on July 2, 2012

Today, Dino went into our garden and picked this edible weed called Purslane and threw it in our salad.  For those of you that don’t know what purslane is watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tw8DcGAGmo&list=UULRDaR2ywG1APiwUzeTwrJw&index=6&feature=plcp .  If you see it in your or our garden, please pick it and add it to the harvest.  Just cut off the roots, wash it and put it in your salad.  This is native of India and is used all over the Mediterran in salads, soups and pickling.
