Borage grass.
Its young shoots and leaves are used fresh and dried as a seasoning for vegetable dishes, for canning and pickling.
In folk medicine it is used for joint rheumatism, edema, and heart weakness.

* Once upon a time, borage was known as a source of vigor and fearlessness. Roman warriors in ancient times even composed a song about this: “Fortified with cucumber grass, I always walk boldly.
Perhaps this meant that borage protected soldiers from scurvy and also had a beneficial effect on digestion. Later, the Crusaders loved drinks infused with borage leaves and flowers. Borage was eaten salted and candied, in seasonings and botvinya.
His flowers "were used everywhere to make the heart feel lighter, worries disappear, and the state of spirit to rise". Perhaps they wanted to emphasize the joy that a person experiences from eating an early fragrant vegetable. After winter, a vegetable with the smell of cucumbers appeared on the table. Simply amazing!
