I have long understood that purslane could be used in salads or soups but never made much of an effort to harvest it until a few years ago.
So, when high summer approaches I am now on the hunt for purslane, considered a noxious weed by most.
I am not the only one who regards purslane with some culinary virtue. A fellow Farm Market farmer at the Belknap Farmers’ Market gave me a taste of his homemade salsa commenting “It is the best way to use purslane.” I was so excited to hear someone else get excited about this so-called weed.
