Hairy bittercress (Cardamine hirsuta). It’s the essential seasonal ingredient for winter soups, pestos, salads & garnishes providing a fresh, and tasty source of vitamins and minerals right through the winter. 

Hairy bittercressIt can be eaten raw and tastes of cress – remember those terracotta cress pigs from your school days? So excellent in a mashed up boiled egg sandwich with a bit of mayonnaise.  
You’ll find it all year round. A weed of waste places, cultivated ground and pavement cracks. But it’s the winter when its valiance is most appreciated.
