Borage General Information
Borage’s culinary and medicinal uses have been known for at least 2000 years. Ancient Romans made an elixir from Borage flowers, which Pliny said had the power to lighten spirits, and in Elizabethan England Borage was prescribed for melancholy. In the early part of the 19th century, the young tops of Borage were sometimes boiled as a pot-herb, and the young leaves were used in salads. Borage flowers were preserved and candied. This herb has a faint cucumber flavor and was used in cool tankards of wine and cider. Today it is still used in a claret cup. Even though this herb has wonderful healing properties, it favors junkyards and waste places for growing rather than tidy gardens and “perfect“ nurseries. Borage has thick soft stems and large leaves. Both of these are covered in fine bristly hairs. The flowers are star shaped with the color blue, sometimes pink and there is a rare kind that has white flowers. Borage is a wild growing hardy native of the Mediterranean region. Traditionally associated with courage, Borage was used to flavor the wine for soldiers preparing for battle.
