Good King Henry, also known as English mercury, wild spinach or poor man’s asparagus, is an edible plant that can be found both cultivated and in the wild. Its extensive list of common names suggests that the plant was an integral part of European diet before other, better known green leafy crops made people forget about Good King Henry. Also, the heavy maintenance of green spaces through mowing has endangered the plant in many areas. Nowadays, small-scale local farmers are offering Good King Henry again, making people rediscover this spinach-like tasting plant, whose edible young leaves can be steamed, boiled or eaten raw in old-fashioned salads.
