BURNET - 25 Seeds
(Poterium sanguisorba minor)
Salad Burnet is a clumping perennial, grows to a height of 40-60cm with pinnate leaves, with pairs of round toothed leaflets.
Burnet leaves have the ability to reduce bleeding, both external and internal. In European medicines, burnet is used in such a way that the medicine prevents hemorrhage. The name sanguisorba is Latin for sanguis or ‘blood’ and is related to sorbere, meaning to soak up. This reflects the character of the herb too. The leaves can be used freshly mashed to help stop bleeding and a leaf tea will stop diarrhoea. Salad Burnet makes cooling floral water that will revive and refresh your skin in hot or dry weather.
Fresh and cooling with a nutty cucumber flavour. Add the leaves to salads, just run fingers down the stem over the salad bowl and the leaves will fall in, no need to tear them they are a perfect size. Add to sandwiches spread with cream cheese or avocado. Yoghurt with chopped dill and Salad Burnet makes a great addition to Indian curries… or if you don’t like the taste of coriander in your salsa’s and Mexican dishes try adding Salad Burnet instead. The leaves can be added to vinegar, salad dressings, butter, cheese and dips.
The leaves contain vitamin C, B and A, calcium, potassium, iron and magnesium.
