Borage leaves
Menu Group: Food
Section: Vegetables
Category: Greens

Vendor: Rasmussen Farm

Borage leaves have a refreshing cucumber flavor. They are a great stress-reliever, high in Vitamin C, calcium and potassium, and are historically associated with courage. They can be steamed or sauteed like spinach, used to flavor drinks (try with lemonade!), salads, fritters or desserts. The raw leaves are slightly hairy and should be chopped finely if used raw in salads. Cooking takes away the hairiness.
