chickweed herb

Chickweed, also known as Indian chickweed, is a wayside herb original to eastern Europe but now widely distributed elsewhere, including North America. It is commonly discovered by home gardeners roosting in a patch of newly tilled soil or in between patio tiles. Pulling the herb out without bringing other weedy companions with it proves difficult, but the flavor and textural interest that raw chickweed lends to salads and sandwiches makes it worth the effort.

The plant is abundant in B vitamins as well as vitamin C and D, iron, calcium and copper. Chickweed also contains a high concentration of saponins, making it a feasible substitute for soapwort in natural cosmetic and household formulations.
