Common purslane (Portulaca olerecea)

Regarding the common purslane, to speak of an ancient vegetable is an understatement, purslane was indeed known to the Egyptians 4000 years ago. Then it was, like many plants, "forgotten". It nevertheless returns to the stalls thanks to market gardeners cultivating ancient vegetables. In salads or mesclun, purslane is eaten fresh, and its leaves, in addition to being very tender, offer you a cocktail of omega 3 and antioxidants. Purslane is emollient and laxative if eaten in large quantities. It is also depurative and diuretic. Chewing a few leaves soothes inflamed gums and minor sore throats.

Latin name: Portulaca olerecea
Common names: Vegetable purslane, market garden purslane, porcelain, porchaille
English: Common purslane
Family: Portulacaceae

Also remember to pinch the stems when they reach 10 cm, to prevent them from spinning without making new branches and new leaves.
