In some German provinces this plant is threatened with extinction, because the the areas of natural grassland decrease. And in parks the lawns are mowed too early. I was very surprised to discover this next to my garden.
And I was astonished to read that the blooms and the young sprouts are edible and they should taste like cress. They are used in salads, soups, sauces and they flavour quark and cream cheese.
But I can’t eat an endangered species, although this recipe sounds very interesting.
