Yes they are just make sure it is purslane . People here dry it or blanch and freeze it for storage. Rinse it in a bowl and dump the water where you want it to grow.
We saute it it up pretty quick in garlic and olive oil. Add some shrimp and pine nuts :) pour in on some pasta

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

SILVER: I hear you. A number of my richest experiences have been with people who have had extra challenges in dealing with reality and daily life, no matter what plane we are discussing.

BTW, are the STEMS edible, on purslane? it would be good to know and better if true cause then prep would be very easy; I am gonna look for some recipes LOL

AHA here is a neat link:

I love learning stuff like that. My neighbor next door knows all kinds of neat stuff. you have to listen very careful and sort through the paranoia because she is schizophrenic but she is pretty neat.

Me neither, til I identified it last year, wondering what the hey it was; and found out it is a delicacy in the french markets. whodathunkit? I always loved going about the neighborhood with my late grandpa, as he would point out this and that homely plant or bush or tree that had edible parts.

I have had this plant in pots for a few years now. This year I went out and bought a few more. I just love them. So, just in case you have never heard of the plant, here is some info!
