Hey Guys
I received a bag of Purslane in my vegetable crate yesterday. I belong to an organic farm where we have a weekly delivery of whatever is picked that day. Has anyone ever used purslane? I also got pea greens but I can probably figure that one out. This "crate" is fun, Xmas every week from June first until Thanksgiving.

    Thanks, Julie
    I may try one of the potato salads. It smells like basil but I read that it is sticky like okra. I hope someone here can tell me from their own experience what it is like. It's fun to try new things. I got squash blossoms in the crate yesterday, what a treat. Now to find more, but I've never seent them in the markets. Very perishable.

    I also found that it is called verdolago(a) in Mexico. I have it growing all over my garden and have been too chicken to try it. Let me know if it is good or not, if you would. It is a weed here in Michigan, it takes over my garden every year. I figure if it is good and I start eating it, it will go away on it's own. lol
    I also heard you can pickle the stems.

    Deer and rabbits don't eat it either. Very hardy and pretty drought tolerant, never thought about eating it though.

    I think it's a nasty weed. I may make potato salad and offer the purslane on the side. But it does smell good, like minty basil.
