Purslane Hugle Bucket

Am I the only one who cooks purslane? I like it raw and in a salad, but it sweats down in a skillet just beautifully. I treat it the same way I would any lettuce.



When it gets leggy, those thick, juicy stems also make great pickles.

Nope. You're not the only one. I cooked it down and added cheese and made a dip for a picnic recently. No one knew they were eating weeds !!! Till I told them !!! <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/devil.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':devil:' />
