Pourpier or Portulaca oleracea

I had a special request for Purslane also known as Pourpier in French and Verdolaga in Spanish this last week and I was able to bring some in from our herb grower Pearson's Gardens. I learned this annual can be enjoyed in stir-fry, salads, and other culinary dishes along with just being enjoyed as a summer flower in the garden.

If you have been looking for this plant it is in stock this week. For more information on this annual visit the link listed above. If you cook with it maybe bring us a sample so we can say first had we've tasted it. I did try it raw but not something I'll be adding to my salads.
