Wild edible food of the month... Pennywort!

Pennywort also known as Navelwort (as it has a navel type dimple in the centre of its leaf) is often found growing out of the cracks in walls and in damp areas and can be picked when green and where it grows in abundance. It grows in the UK and parts of southern and western Europe. Wall Pennywort has been used in homeopathic medicine and is known as Cotyledon umbilicus to practitioners.

Pennywort is a real tasty edition to the winter foragers collection! Its very succulent and packed with a kind of pea pod type/lettece flavour. It can be used in salads, sarnies, jucied... whatever takes your imagination!
