Veggie Unearthed: Golden Purslane

herb_purslane600

Your Golden Purslane is coming to us from Ben Wells Produce in St. Augustine , FL — less than 100 miles from most of our customers homes.

Golden Purslane is a succulent plant that is used as an herb or an accent to dishes. Grown and consumed since ancient times, the herb is known today as a bit of a nutritional powerhouse. It offers high amounts of minerals such as calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, B & C, and antioxidants.

The leaves are crunchy with a tangy lemony and peppery flavor — a perfect addition to soups, salads, or dressings. However, if you do decide to cook this plant but be sure not to overcook – they’ll go slimy on you like okra or malabar spinach.

To store your Purslane, place in a plastic bag and place into the refrigerator drawer. If the bag is closed, open the bag slightly, to allow air circulation which will prevent molding.
