milkweed pods

Recommended Posts

we got a dozen from the Wild Gourmet Food people from VT. They said to just steam them. (they had another suggestion but way too much work.)

I had no idea they were edible.

 

We see them by the hundreds at the dog park. Great place to spot Monarch caterpillars. And the sap is good if you've come in contact with poison ivy.

i'd rather go after a maple bacon donut (or a hundred other things) than milkweed though

steamed for about 10 min, the pods are quite soft and delicious, with a light broccoli-like flavor. we threw them in with some sauteed mushrooms but i could see sauteing them with a little garlic, too. Esp. if they grew somewhere nearby.
