Learn how to plant, grow, and care for salsify.
Eat and cook salsify like most root vegetables. Enjoy in soup and stews, boil, roast, or mash.
Be sure first to scrub the root under cold running water, peel with a sharp knife and place in water with a little lemon juice.
We like to simmer for 20 to 30 minutes (until soft, NOT mushy) and then sauté a little further in a little butter.
