Wintercress

I just discovered wintercress (Barbarea verna) this week, so I’m excited about it! Its flower buds look like tiny, bright broccoli crowns (which makes sense since they’re both in the Brassicaceae family). it’s tender, spicy, and a bit bitter. I’ve snacked on it raw but am excited to try it cooked too. Here’s more ID info: http://www.missouriplants.com/Yellowalt/Barbarea_vulgaris_page.html
