Shallot Cress

Currently my favorite plant, and the first thing I eat from the garden each spring. Lepidium campestre, var mahontongo , an improved form of an European wild cress, with a sweet, peppery, bitter, allium flavor. Biennial and hardy as an oak.

Just a coda to my initial description, as of March 31, 2020, - we have two beds of overwintered plants that sprouted last fall. They are all alive, weathered by the winter a bit, but delicious and putting out new leaves! A very welcome source of greens these days. Also makes a dynamic lacto ferment!

How do you do the lactofermentation process?
