Some purslane was juiced.The plant was pulled in the early morning, since it is most succulent at this time.It was cooked outdoors, stained and pressure canned indoors. There is little strained residue (cellulose) from this plant. Annotated pictures depict the process.

A 8 by 8 foot garden area was prepares in the Spring, and nothing was planted in the area. After reviewing the situation, it was discovered that the area was well self-seeded with Purslane. The small weeds were hand removed.It was decided to allow this plant to grow and utilize is as a vegetable. Apparently it is most nutritional.I will use it mostly for juicing.
