Product Description

Leaves – raw or cooked. A mild pleasant flavour. The leaves are mucilaginous and fairly bland, this is a very good perennial substitute for lettuce in a salad, producing fresh leaves from spring until the middle of summer, or until the autumn from self-sown plants. Flowers – raw. A very decorative addition to the salad bowl, they have a mild flavour and a texture similar to the leaves. Seed – raw. Best used before it is fully mature, the seed has a pleasant nutty taste but it is rather small and fiddly to harvest. The leaves are demulcent. They are also used as a mouthwash for inflammatory and catarrhal conditions.
