So many of you are having a terrible winter. Here in New York Spring has arrived. While you are just getting seeds started, I am harvesting delicious tender hosta shoots.
Not exactly foraging because I grow hostas as a vegetable. Hosta is grown in Japan as a vegetable, it is considered a delicacy. It is probably the most amazing vegetable you can grow in your garden. It needs no sun, no fertilizer, no watering, no trimmimg and it is a decorative perennial that comes up every year before anything else. It will be many more weeks before you can have anything edible from your garden.
Hosta shoots are like asparagus and endive without the bitterness, very mild and tender.
Have you tried hosta? If so, how do you make yours?
