Purslane (Portulaca oleracea L) is abundant in my garden this year, so 40 litres was harvested and 25 made into juice and about 15 was dehydrated. The plants were cut at ground level to eliminate the root and associated soil.The juice is simple to make, since it only had to be blended into a slurry, since the plant has almost no coarse cellulose. The dehydrated plant material will be utilized as a drink or soup base. Apparently this ubiquitous weed has many desirable nutrients.
