About Purslane Edit

A garden herb with smooth, oval to spade shaped leaves that grows on a smooth, fleshy, reddish stem. It has an acidic, salty and slightly aromatic taste and has a fairly high vitamin C content. Purslane is used in salads, soups, sauces and cream cheese and makes a good accompaniment to raw fruits and vegetables. It can also be eaten as a vegetable, somewhat like spinach.
