Have you ever eaten a fresh water chestnut? About the size of a radish and peeled like a clove of garlic, they are very juicy and sweet, far superior to the canned variety. Amaranth leaves, also called Chinese spinach, are widely eaten around the world. The greens taste much like Swiss chard or spinach and have excellent nutritional value. Check out my recipe for cooked amaranth leaves here. Enjoy!
