Good King Henry


Chenopodium bonus-henricus. Once known as Lincolnshire asparagus or markery, this unfussy plant will live in a corner of the garden and give young shoots in spring and leaves throughout the year with a pleasing spinach flavour. If older leaves seem bitter they can be soaked in salt water for 30 minutes prior to cooking. Use the seeds like poppy seeds or cook like quinoa.
