Chap from our Indian Restaurant (Bangladeshi) has just been down to
collect a large armful of the Red Amaranth we grew for them. Said they
all loved it last week, ate everything stems and all.
I have tried it, and didn't like it. I am growing Callaloo (A. dubius),
which is much better, and am trying some Bangladeshi green amaranth
seeds - but sowed them very late, and they may not grow enough.
Also took some of the younger leaves off the gourds for a Bhaji (?).
Anyone heard of such leaves being eaten? (They have a strange smell)
Yes. I haven't eaten them myself, though you remind me that I have
meant to for some time.
