Re: [PF] Poor man's Beano
- I had some black tea epazote growing in my garden last year. It died over winter, but I just went out and checked and sure enough it came back. I did let it go to seed, so maybe it's actually a new plant. Not sure what species but the little card that came with it says it's Chenopodium. I never noticed whether or not it works like Beano because I didn't know it was used for that reason. I'll have to check it out next time I make beans..~:*"*:~.Lygeia.~:*"*:~.

Sitting in my car before a ball game I saw what looked like Epazote/Chenopodium ambrosioides growing along the chain link fence. I got out and indeed it was. It was good sized for this time of year since they are annuals and I yanked it up with a good root system intact and will put it in a pot when I get home. I had some growing in my yard last year but haven't seen any come up. I'll use some in bean dishes this Summer.
