It’s that time of year. All manner of lesser known but edible, nay , delicious plants are spring up with spring time springness. A personal fav is tangle gut, or as my Mother calls it, “chicken toe” though that’s not correct. You can eat every bit of it and it makes great salads. replace lettuce with it, put it on burgers or place a small sprig in your hair for a more charming look.
Doused in hot bacon grease and eaten with cornbread is the local tradition. Not very good for the old ticker but it tastes great. I find that it grows in shady spots where its damp. The window for finding it is only a week or two at best because it doesn’t stick around long. Put in a zip lock and in the fridge and it will last as long as lettuce.
