Lambsquarters

$4.99

2-2.5 oz

Foraged wild from a local organic farm in New Jersey, lambsquarters is a delicious, nutritious delight for foragers, and a summer treat no one should miss. Despite numerous, often odoriferous monikers (like pigweed, fat-hen, goosefoot, bacon weed, dirty Dick, and Muck Hill weed), lambsquarters is actually super delicious, tasting like a very mild spinach. One of the most nutritious foods on the planet, lambsquarters grows like a weed (cause it is) and actually was Europe's original spinach until common spinach cultivars were brought over from other parts of the world. Sauté with garlic and oil; steam into a rice pilaf; bake into egg dishes.

Wrap in a damp towel, place in a plastic bag, and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
