One response to “Purslane

  1. I had my first experience with purslane this spring. I thoroughly enjoyed it’s delightful texture and distinct almost citrus flavor. I’ve been shopping regularly here in Macon, GA at our local farmers market where all the fruits and vegetables are grown right here at family farms. We love the option to eat healthier and better. Keep up your mission of teaching and sharing with others the dimension of healthy living.
