No thanks, I'll stick with Rib Eyes.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

interesting , the entire plant is poisonus to eat but cooking it seems to reduce toxins

sort of reminds me of Garlic mustard , it is bad for you in large quantity but can be eaten in small quantity when very young


should be a real reminder that spring was starving season and people would try eating about anything


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

So some of you eat the stems, and some of you eat the greens? I never tried it but always assumed people were cooking it like greens. Never heard of deep frying the stems before..

Been eating it all my life. My favorite green by far. I like to pick it about 2 inches taller than wwr picture. I boil it twice and discard the water each time. Drain and press to remove the most water as possible. Sautee some onions until they are translucent, add polk salad and sautee to your liking and then throw a couple of scrambled eggs in the pan. Cook until eggs are done and you will be searching for that trash plant every spring afterwards.
