Time for Sally’s Health common where she tells us all about the many benefits of Watercress.

My first memories of watercress were for Sunday afternoon tea in the summer served with Salmon, brown bread or egg and watercress sandwiches. I used to love them…

When I was reading Sally’s marvelous post on the health benefits of watercress it is certainly a most impressive little aquatic herb and packed with lots of iron….those egg and cress sandwiches were my first thought and watercress gives that wonderful distinctive peppery taste and of course if it picked while young and tender it much milder as the pungency gets stronger with age…Enjoy the post xx

    Thank you Carol for sharing…. We uses to get watercress from a fresh water spring in our village… Way back when I was a child… Not sure I would want to gather it today from there, as the last time I went back, people were using the water to wash their cars ..

      That was often the case when we were children and it is such shame that many of our waterways are now polluted…I hope you are keeping safe and well , Sue 🙂 x

    Hi Carol, I really appreciated Sally’s great information about watercress. Good to know about watercress getting more pungent with age. On my grocery list. 🙂
