I just read an interesting article suggesting eating purslane in salads. I never heard of it before so I looked it up. Here's a few pictures, see if you recognize it: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&...&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi If you're like me, you will readily recognize this stuff. It's a weed I have growing in my yard all over. As hard as I try to kill it by pulling it up and spraying, it always comes back. And not just the occasional sprout either. It's the rabbit of the weed world, prolific and able to grow in any kind of nasty soil. It grows in abundance where my dogs pee and the grass dies. It grows on a rocky hill in my front yard where even dandelions can't grab root. And according to what I've read, it's both delicious and nutritious! http://web.extension.illinois.edu/cfiv/homeowners/030726.html Ok, I'm going home tonight and drop some in my salad. So who else has tried thist stuff and what do you think? Have any good recipies simple enough for an engineer to make?
