Grow your own Borage Cress. Once you’ve tasted Borage Cress, you’ll understand why the Dutch call it “cucumber herb”. The cress has an unmistakeably clean and refreshing taste, with salty notes reminiscent of oyster. Borage Cress makes an excellent addition to shellfish or lightly cooked and cold smoked fish. We also recommend combining Borage Cress with meat or steak tartare.
