Palmer amaranth, a.k.a. pigweed, is defying all our efforts to beat it back. Why not eat it instead?
I find it so ironic that the evil ‘super-pig-weed-from-hell’ which threatens to conquer genetically-modified monoculture is actually one of the most nutritious and hardy foods on Earth. Amaranth was a sacred and vital part of the diet for the Hopi as well as many other precolumbian societies - it is a cousin of Quinoa and every bit as nutrient-dense and delicious, too.
