Weeds in the Harvest

July 3, 2018


Featured Edible Weed in this Week's Box

Portulaca oleracea

aka Verdolaga, Purslane, Pursley, Portulaca, or Pigweed.


This succulent weed has a lemony zip, you may have seen them growing in... your yard?  Well this plant has Omega-3 Fatty acids, vitamins A, C, and B Complex! My favorite way to eat it is raw, pick off all the leaves, throw it in the freezer to chill while I chop other veggies for a salad, and sprinkle them on top! That way you get the most nutrients.  Its also  great fresh in a salad or steamed or boiled with pasta and veggies. It does get a bit slimy if overcooked, and before you run out your door to backyard forage, make sure its not been watered by your dogs or the neighbor's dogs ; )  Learn more by clicking on the link below.
