Lettuce - Mache (150gr)

about

Also known as lamb's lettuce, Mache has long spoon-shaped dark leaves and a distinctive, tangy flavour. Lamb's lettuce is at its best from May to November.The name Lambís Lettuce was given to the leaf because of its resemblance to the size and shape of a lambs tongue. There is also a belief that it was so named because it is the favourite food of lambs (apparently in nature the first crop appeared around lambing time).With its sweet and delicate taste, Mache can be used raw in salads as well as steamed and served as a vegetable.
