韭菜

渐觉东风料峭寒,青蒿黄韭试春盘。
遥想庆州千嶂里,暮云衰草雪漫漫。

                                                                 苏东坡《送范德孺》

邻居种有一盆韭菜,据说是好几年前她的家婆种的。韭菜长得茂盛时,她就割一部分来吃,割掉的部分会再长出新的韭菜,所以,虽然她的家婆已去世几年,那一盆韭菜还吃到今天。

她说:有时候冰箱的菜吃完了,临时没有买到菜,就去剪一把韭菜来煎蛋,很方便。种韭菜也不需要什么人工,勤浇水就可以了。

她这些话把我吸引了,上回回乡去跟家婆说我要种韭菜。家婆笑了一声,没说什么,因为她知道我种花常常变成种草,无论如何,她还是割了一些韭菜苗给我带上来。

还好韭菜不负众望,种了几个星期已长得不错,可以炒一盘韭菜蛋了。

不知为什么,我家从来都不买韭菜,我也从来没吃过。直到嫁了人才在夫家吃过,哈哈。。。

我倒是很喜欢吃韭菜,煎蛋,包饺子,还有包韭菜的菜粄和潮州糕等都很喜欢。

旧时在小镇上逢韭菜煎蛋,即刻引来“不速之客”,印象深刻。现在,楼高风寒,不速之客鲜少见到,但韭菜一小束九毛钱,也就不常吃了。

韭菜洗切了就要马上煮,要不然放了一阵后就有难闻的味道。

I was told by elderly woman that 'ku chai' is not a suitable and favourable greens to cook and eat. It was believed that often consume of such greens would jeopadised health, especially for woman that their veins will be swollen and those had internal injury will reoccur and pains.

Prevention is better than cure and my family never buy such greens as we have lots of other green vegetables to consume in our daily life.

Yes. My mother in law told me the same thing. Any way, after checking information from the internet, I realize that ku chai is good for health.
