    I don't think I have ever seen this weed. Does it flower? Is it bitter,sweet, spicy? Interesting....

    This is an excellent recipe Jim, Purslane is considered a weed by many who do not know the value it has. It is also a soil indicator if you have it then your soil is suppose to be rich and healthy. I always have plenty every year and I can not wait to try this recipe this spring.

    Excellent, Jim! I've not had this type of green before. Thanks for putting it up!

    I guess I'm just going to have to go out to my garden and see if I have some ;-)

    Thank You -- Ray

    Dude, this is CONSTANTLY springing up in my garden!! I call it my nemesis but I did read you can eat it - in a great book called 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle' by Barbara Kingsolver.

    I suppose I should stop chickening out and try it!! You're a great adventure cook. I'll let you know if/when I try it!

    Greeks eat purslane like Americans eat spinach. I love it and it is great for the immune system!!

    I found it in my garden and was told the best way to control this weed is to eat it. I sure don't have to cultivate it. this looks good.

    We have purslane as an ornamental during hot weather. Too bad, it is watered with reclaimed water, I'd be afraid to harvest. What an unusual dish. Thanks for the post.
