Plantain: Eat or Heal. Leaves are rich in calcium, vitamin A & C. Wash leaves and remove stems. Parboil for 15 min. Drain & rinse. Boil again or fry in saturated fat. In the Highlands the Plantain is called plant of healing, from a firm belief in its healing virtues. The fresh leaves are applied whole or bruised in the form of a poultice. Rubbed on parts of the body stung by insects, nettles, or as an application to burns & scalds.
