Buckshorn (pronounced like Buck’s Horn), also known as herba stella, is similar in taste to parsley or kale, but has a nuttier flavor and is a bit sweeter. The leaves themselves are rather crunchy and are a wonderful addition to salads. The flowers may also be used in salads but the greens — the leaves — are at their peak flavor before flowers appear. Buckshorn does best in cool, damp weather and is usually ready for harvest by June (if planted in early April).
These specialized herbs and vegetables are now being used by creative cooks everywhere! Foodie Delights!
