Claytonia, also known as miner’s lettuce or winter purslane, is a mild and sweet lettuce that is higher in omega 3-s than any other plant and loaded with Vitamin C. The entire plant is edible from the green heart shaped leaves and pinkish stems to the delightful little white flowers.
STORAGE TIPS: Wrap in a flour sack towel or paper towel and store in a breathable plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your fridge. Typically lasts 3-5 days.
