QUELITES or LAMBS QUARTERS: Recipe for the Week
Quelites, also called lamb's quarters, are a real bargain this week. Quelites sell for about $2 for a huge bag. It's a delicious wild green. Saute onions in a skillet and maybe also cook salt pork. Then pull the leaves off the quelites and discard the stems. Some people feed them to their chickens. Chop up the leaves and while the skillet is hot, throw them into the skillet and stir until limp. Then add a tiny bit of water, turn off the flame and smother the greens for a few seconds, then eat.
