Plantain, is a broadleaf herb that has the distinction of being the most widely distributed and abundant foraging crops in the world.
According to John Abercrombie, Scottish horticulturist and botany professor at the University of Cambridge and co-author of Every Man His Own Gardener, first published in 1767, plantain leaf was among the most popular salad herbs enjoyed in his day. Today, the powdered leaf is often encapsulated as a dietary supplement, or used to make poultices, salves and other topical preparations.
