Hot and hazy days are here and a big bunch of watercress boiled with honey and red dates in a crock pot will help to quench parched throats. Pluck the leaves from the stems to be fried separately to make another dish for lunch.
Watercress is brimming with over 15 vitamins and minerals, gram for gram containing more vitamin C than oranges, more calcium than milk and more iron than spinach. Research is also highlighting its role in the fight against cancer. The results of a new study being conducted by the University of Southampton
into watercress’s potential ability to suppress breast cancer cell development are due to be announced later this year.
