Orach, it's purple!

Coming home to a box of organic veggies has to be the best feeling in the world. It's like Christmas. I open each package, think about what I am going to do with the contents

...Cauliflower..mmmm...carrots...yum...Purple leafy stuff..what the?

It's called Orach, and it's the best part of the box. Not the Orach itself but the veggies we get that I have never seen before. I grew up on a small farm, we had a big garden so I am not a novice but apparently there are lots of veggie varieties I have yet to even see or hear of. This particular green(or purple) has been compared to spinach. I'll have to tell you how it tastes later, but it looks like something out of Dr Seuss. Purple Leaves!
