Food For The Hungry

I took the photo this morning of the succulent "Pig's Ears" or Cotyledon orbiculata. It is known to many in South Africa as food. However, note that there are (apparently) relatives of this plant which are a little poisonous. My wife, as a child, ate this plant when she was hungry. It is also called Plakkie in Afrikaans. One may click on the photo to enlarge.
