Mâche - Vit - Valerianella locusta
Hardy Annual Also called Corn Salad and Lamb’s Lettuce. A longtime favorite winter green in France. In most cold climates mâche (rhymes with "wash") will grow throughout the winter under row cover. These productive plants have many thick leaves which are tasty raw in salads especially when paired with spicy mustards or arugula. Mâche has a nutty, mellow flavor that is also delicious when sauteed like spinach. Resistant to mildew.
Did You Know? Mâche is a relative of valerian and on an ounce by ounce basis has almost as much Vitamin C as lemon juice.
