We spend millions every year trying to get rid of it. We find in our lawns and judge it a weed, paying experts to remove it. And yet, chickweed is a wild edible that is widespread and nutritious; millions are wasted every year destroying a valuable (and free) food source! Chickweed finds its origins in Eurasia, but has spread all over the world, probably clinging to the clothes and shoes of travelling humans. As we have spread, so has chickweed, and we have a long history of utilizing the plat for a variety of uses.
Chickweed is an annual herb that enjoys shady areas and moist soil. It grows year round, making it a viable foraging option during the winter, when most wild edibles are unavailable. Also setting it apart from many other wild edibles, the entire plant is edible; you can enjoy the chickweed’s stems, leaves, flowers, and seeds as food. The herb is an excellent source of minerals, containing high volumes of vitamins A, D, B complex, and C as well as iron, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, sodium, copper, and silica. It, of course, also tastes good, and is eaten raw and cooked in a variety of dishes. You can add chickweeds to salads as a fresh spring green, cooked in a similar way to spinach, or used in stews or soups. Chickweed also has a long history of medicinal use, mainly utilized as a treatment for a variety of skin diseases and cuts, burns, and bruises.
