Iíve been reading about the health benefits of this weed and wondered about eating it instead of pulling it in my garden. But, Iíve hesitant. Iíve only ever eaten garden food I grew on purpose. Thoughts?

I have purslane in my garden too. It is basically a weed. I throw it in my salads and also steam it with some garlic, then add some salt and pepper. You can add some olive oil as well, but I like it without.
When I was in Italy, it was apparently purslane season because restaurants offered it on their menu.

I had to look it up to make sure it was the plant I thought it was. I watched a good video comparing purslane to hairy splurge. I've never tried it. I do pull it as a weed from the garden! Let us know if you try it.
