Dove’s foot is an ed­i­ble weed, with medic­i­nal uses dat­ing back to 1652 when Ni­cholas Culpeper de­scribed the heal­ing qual­i­ties which in­cluded fix­ing wind colic, and ex­ter­nal wounds such as sores and ul­cers. Its praises con­tinue with the ex­tract of this plant in wine of­ten be­ing used to treat in­ter­nal in­juries. Ju­lia Sich of Tau­ranga-based www.ju­liased­i­ble­weeds.com uses the leaves in smooth­ies.
