Originating in Syria, this bristly flowering herb is also known as starflower. It has a prickly appearance, produces star-shaped, edible blue flowers that are often used as a garnish in dishes.
Less common in everyday recipes, it is favoured in soups in Germany and Frankfurt’s well-known green sauce, (Grüne Soße). Italian pasta recipes use it as a filling for ravioli and you’ll often find it as a garnish in the popular Pimm’s cocktail. The herb has been widely used for many years for its medicinal properties, claiming to alleviate colds and respiratory infections. Borage is growing increasingly popular as a natural dietary supplement. Borage oil has high concentrations of linoleic acid and omega fats, beneficial to the body.
