It's the middle of summer and purslane is growing all over our yard. I look forward to harvesting this salt lush green every year for our morning juice. High in omega-3's this is a special plant to have.
That... does not look like purslane?
Just a funny angle
It looks like a branch of a woody shrub, though - not at all like an herbaceous... http://www.simplyrecipes.com/photos/purslane.jpg ...purslane? Or is there a local plant that goes by the same common name that isn't the introduced one?
I have been going crazy with purslane, aka verdolagas, as my half-Mex partner informed me when recalling picking with the family in the yard.We made a SUPER Mexican-Irish inspired yummy soup with it: caramelized onions & garlic, spices (cumin featured as I have just been loving it lately) a good veg stock (I was out but Knorr brand bouillion was very tasty) 3 pounds of potatoes, a bag of mixed vegs, cooked about an hour; also have made some purslance omelettes, asian noodle soups, slurry for freezing for winter, also fresh as salad, very tasty.
