Borage recipes

Borage is a plant with blue flowers that was introduced to Britain by the Romans and grows wild in some areas. Its leaves, flowers and stalks are edible and taste a little like cucumber. Borage leaves are good in salads, yoghurt or cream cheese mixtures, or served with shellfish.

Preparation

Borage leaves are furry and become more prickly with age, so they need to be picked young and chopped finely. The stalks can be cooked like any other vegetable.
