This small succulent plant can be found growing abundantly in gardens and woods in early spring and fall. I always snack on it whenever I see it as it has a light refreshing taste and is high in nutrients. It makes a great pesto or addition to salad. Traditionally it is used topically for dry skin irritations such as eczema, bites, stings, minor scrapes and cuts. It should not be used for wet, mucus laden skin conditions. It is cooling to heated, dry, irritated skin.
