Lamb's quarter.

Subject: Lamb's quarter

I used some horse manure on my flower garden and ended up with a surprise. Lambs quarter (Chenopodium album) suddenly appeared. Since this is not native to this area I have never used it. I tried eating leaves in a salad (boring). So what does one do with lamb's quarter? Any ideas?

I never like lamb's quarters in salad because of the residual grainy feeling on the leaves, but cheer up--it only grows in very fertile ground.

I like it steamed with butter. Kinda the way you would eat spinach. If you wash it really thoroughly before cooking, it will remove a lot of the grainy texture.
