Upland Cress is a wonderful addition to any garden. I usually can't wait for Spring and start growing it in the house in December. Cress is really nice in soups, salads, and stands very well all on its own. I enjoy it with a few crumbles of cheese and some olive oil and vinegar dressing and some salt and pepper. Very good.
Cress is so good for us. It is amazing that such a little plant can packed full of so many nutrients. Cress is a Cruciferous vegetable and has been shown to be a cancer preventative. Cress contains substances that are known to help with gout and get the metabolism going. It has more vitamin C than an orange, more vitamin A then broccoli, as well as many others - vitamin E, calcium, iron, etc...
Interestingly enough seeds of this plant have been found in the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs.
