Wild Edibles- Purslane


Sold by the bundle. Purslane is just one of the wild edibles we offer here at Silver Maple Farm, and is a rich source of potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Use raw in salad for a bit of crunch, or blend into your favorite smoothie. Loren and I chop this up and toss it into omelets.

Similar in taste to spinach or watercress and a plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acid, according to Scientific World Journal, “The antioxidant content and nutritional value of purslane are important for human consumption.”

According to Dr. Axe, co-founder of Ancient Nutrition, 100 grams of raw purslane, or (.22 lbs.) slightly less than ¼ pound, contains about:
