See What I Made with Japanese Knotweed!

Can you believe it has been two and a half years since I posted?
I am sorry. I want to post more now...

Do you like Japanese knotweed? It is a wild edible.

I made sauteed Japanese knotweed.

I also made Japanese knotweed ice cream.

I made Japanese knotweed sauce, too, but I did not like the sauce that much.

Do you know how to harvest Japanese knotweed?  I will teach you:

1.  Look for ones under one foot that have no branches.

2.  Break or cut them off.

3.  Pick all the leaves off.

4.  Soak the stalks for 15 minutes to an hour to clean them and get any outs out.

Discard leaves back in the patch so you don't spread the knotweed.  Knotweed is invasive and grows everywhere!

Goodbye for now (not two years!)
