Callaloo (Amaranth) is not a weed. It grows aggressively like a weed but the leaves are spinach-like and packed with vitamins and its fruit or seeds are a densely vitamin packed grain. Here I am weeding it from the teaching garden where it was strangling the fish peppers and okra.  Once it was picked and washed I prepared it with coconut milk, squash, onion, red chilies and spices. It was pretty good! Calallo is very Caribbean!  - By Blair Williams, RAFT-P Apprentice
