Picking and Cooking Wild Greens From Our Yard
How I gathered, prepared, and cooked Shepherd's Purse and Henbit to have as mixed greens for New Year's! Shepherd's Purse is a member of the Mustard family, and Henbit is a member of the Mint family. I was interested to learn from Wikipedia that Shepherd's Purse is a regular part of cuisines in Japan, Korea, and parts of China. Both are winter annuals that are readily available this year on New Year's Eve in Texas, as they will tolerate freezing temperatures for a while. I think they are VERY tasty!
