Nasturtium relish

The culinary experiments with “free wild food” continue.. Succulently pungent stems of Tropaeolum majus masterfully blended with some beetroot and a pinch of salt. Tah-dah – my  Nasturtium relish a la borsch…

Known to herbalists for its antimicrobial property, this lovely plant can be used for stubborn coughs, nasty bladder and skin infections.  It is also said to stimulate hair growth when rubbed into the scalp.. hm… I’m sure the beet root will add an irresistible burgundy glow to the scalp as well  …
