Burnet (Sanguisorba minor)
Edible perennial. Its name comes from the Latin sanguis (blood) and sorbere (smell, absorb) and refers to the haemostatic properties of the plant, linked to the tannins contained in its roots. It is also very rich in vitamin C.; Before parsley dethroned it, it was used in salads, sauces, omelettes, soups, etc. Its flavor is reminiscent of cucumber. We pick the leaves according to our needs. In the garden, it requires little care, just a little love and fresh water. In Quebec, it resists winter well and can be eaten late in the season. Harvest young leaves throughout the summer.
