Native to: Europe and western asia, and has become naturalized in parts of north america.
Notes for Identification: Burnet is a low growing evergreen perennial that makes a great edging around beds and borders. For the kitchen, harvest whole leaves as needed, but wait until the plant is well established, which may be several months. Strip the leaflets off the wiry rachis (leaf stem) and use in salads or sandwiches. The taste usually is likened to that of cucumbers, and burnet can be used interchangeably with borage. The slightly bitter flavor goes well with cream cheese, and salad burnet is especially delicious sprinkled on cottage cheese. Use it in cole slaw and yogurt. Salad burnet is used to make a flavored vinegar, and was once added to claret salad burnet was once much more common in the herb and kitchen garden. It is attractive, tasty and easy to grow, and deserves to be used more in american gardens.
