Purslane and other driveway finds
Well, I didn't actually pick this from my driveway, but it does happen to grow there!
I get my veggies from a CSA these days. We have a deal, I make their new website and they send me veggies and eggs for the whole season. I love this arrangement!
Have had the opportunity to try new things. Today it is purslane. It lookes a little funky, like a succulent sort of a weed, which is why I didn't know it was edible. But it has a nice, light, slightly lemony flavor. It was good in my salad at lunch, with arugula, parsley, tomatoes, red onions and tuna.
Sorrel is also nice. Very lemony flavor. Nice in a sandwich with grilled zucchini.
I am always trying to get people to eat dandelion greens. Martha Stewart picked them from the sidewalks during her time in prison.
Not from my driveway but new to me were radish tops. Cooked them with onions and then put them in a soup with potatoes and a little half and half and blended it all. Yum!
