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.
