    Anyone ever tried cattails? I’ve been reading up on them lately as they are a very obvious (meaning, easy to identify) foraging plant in my area. I’ve read that the corndog looking part (how’s that for a description? LOL) taste like corn on the cob? LOL. I read that the root can be dug up and eaten and is similar to a potatoe (i.e. a starch) but that you should only eat if in water that isn’t polluted (well, that’s evereywhere in Louisiana! Ha!). I also read that some Native Americans used to extract the pollen (or whatever it is) to use as a type of flour.

    Anybody actually tried any of this? Just curious…. How did you prepare it?
