Lambsquarter - What parts are edible?
I've read a lot about the leaves and stems of lambsquarter being edible and nutritious and that the dried seeds are also edible, e.g., as a cooked cereal or used like poppy seeds in baking.
The lambsquarter I have - almost certain it's lambsquarter - right now has little green fruits (unripe seedpods?) that look kind of like gooseberries. Art those edible, e.g., in salads? Or do you have to let them ripen and then dry them to remove the seeds?
Also, now that it's August, the lambsquarter plants have grown pretty long, with many side stems branching out. Is it too late in the summer for the leaves to be edible raw? If so, are they still good if cooked like spinach?
