Sauteed Cattails – BC Wild Foods – Experiment #1
I’m always on the hunt for new and unusual food sources that you can pick in British Columbia. Apparently, cattails can be eaten two ways; the female (non flowering) head can be cooked and eaten like corn (it doesn’t taste like corn) and the young shoots can be cooked like asparagus.
I’m going to pick and try this out today, I will report back!
Anyone tried them before and have a good recipe? I would love to hear from you.
Okay, I’m off to get my boots wet… chat soon.
