Borage leaves, buds and stems are covered in fine white hairs that can become sharp and prickly with maturity. The tiny flowers are star-shaped and can be blue, lavender or purple, and yield a delicious honey. Borage leaves are approximately 5-8 centimeters long and oval-shaped with wavy margins. They are deeply wrinkled with coarse veins that give a crunchy texture. Borage leaves are prone to developing a rusty yellow and brown color. Use only the new sage green leaves which have a striking flavor of freshly shucked oyster with an herbal cucumber finish. Borage leaves are often minced or blended to soften their prickly mouthfeel.
Borage leaves are available in the early spring and into summer.
Borage is botanically classified as Borago officinalis and also commonly known as Bee Plant or Beebread. It is a hardy annual native to Eurasia that has been used for centuries in both medicinal and culinary applications.
