Garden Cress

Lepidium sativum

Our forefathers used garden cress to season their foods before the spice trade brought affordable pepper to Europe. Garden cress grows... well, like a weed and some people think the plant's name in many languages is derived from the Latin word crescere, which means to grow fast. Cress was also used in the old Mediterranean cultures, both as a herbal remedy and an edible green. It contains iron, folic acid, and vitamins A and C. The tangy, sharpish flavor peps up salads and soups and gives a fresh edge o sandwiches or smoke salmon. The young shoots make a pretty garnish on all kinds of dishes and the bigger leaves can be used like rocket.
