Today I got an Epicurious email update and as I scanned through I found a recipe using purslane. Yep - the weed! Its actually a well used plant in eastern Euro cultures. I hope to join in.
One thing led to another and led me out to the garden for a picture and harvesting. I have pulled so much of this out of the garden paths and tossed it aside that it suddenly was hard to find. My initial taste says "pea pod" flavor. I started with tips. The larger leaves were not as sweet, but altogether a big fat GO!
Now I see it has fantastic health benefits too. http://www.greensense.com/~alnw/Features/Wild_garden/purslane.htm
I added the two sites that sent me on my new edible path today. Check them out for yourselves. More research to follow.
