Todd's Guide to Eating Purslane
-------------------------------
Gibbons says the best way to harvest purslane is to pinch off the leafy
tips. This is because they grow back almost immediately (some say
overnight), so a few plants can furnish a lot of edible purslane. He also
give some recipes. It can be eaten raw, as a salad vegetable, or boiled.
He suggests adding a quart of purslane tips to bacon when it is about
finished cooking, mixing it in with the bacon fat and letting it cook for a
few more minutes. Then season to taste with your favorates spices.
