This is most interesting and appreciated info. Could you please explain this quoted part? I'm not clear on what the Lymphatic is or used for. I would like to understand it better.

Neighbor burnt his feet real bad and did not go to doctor. He used polk root poultices to draw out the infection. He said you had to be careful because the root is so strong.


Old enough to know better, but dumb enough to still try.

I heard or read somewhere a polk berry a day will eliminate arthritis. Quantity is poisonous though.

Deer love'em, too. They're real high in crude protein.

I have eeaten the greens and stalks. I used to think they had to be young and green also, but my grandmother cooks them when they are older also. However the older pithy stalks are no good. You do have to par boil twice before they are edible.
I have never had the berries however I have been told that once the seed are removed they can be made into a jelly. I was told the seeds and roots are never edible.

A lymphatic herb is one that assists the body in flushing toxins out through the lymphatic system.

A buddy and I had a conversation several years ago about rinsing poke in changes of boiling water. He said he never did and ate them his whole 52 yrs of life. I told him that the oxolic acid would cause kidney stones, he laughed. Labor day found him in the ER with more than one large kidney stones.

Poke Berry juice is said to be a good cure for rheumatism. Naturalists have a recipe (it can be found online) for making a wine that they believe helps with many different ailments. I am trying to develop a market for the dry berries. Would anyone be interested in collecting and drying the berries next year?
