This week’s bag features Red Russian Kale with Amaranth. Amaranth is generally considered a weed, but is actually a delicious wild food. When collected very young Amaranth is similar to spinach. It’s a tasty green that is usually boiled but can also be sauteed like your other greens. Later it becomes a source of grain. These stages, however, are dynamic, changing and they change at different rates with different species of amaranth. Enjoy this special treat knowing that some people mistakenly think it is inedible and belongs in the compost bin!
