Available year-round, epazote has a peak season in winter.
Epazote is grown as a leaf vegetable and an herb. Its other common names are Mexican Tea and Wormseed.
Epazote can be poisonous if consumed in large quantities but is well known as a digestive and carminative.
Used traditionally in Mexican and Latin American cuisine, Epazote may be used in sauces, soups and as a fresh green. Pair Epazote with tomatillo, tomato, onions, fresh chile, meat, poultry and seafood. Use sparingly as Epazote has a distinctly strong flavor. To store, keep dry and refrigerate.
