Cattail heads to use as tinder in the firepit and shoots for a snack!


This is the part you eat. You have to peel the outside leaves off to get to the cattail hearts. The white part is the best - once it starts turning green it doesn't taste very good. You can cook them, but I personally think they taste best raw - sort of like cucumber...

    1. Generally spring is best, but you can sometimes still find plants young enough to be tasty in the summer as well. If you catch the flower heads in the green stage, you can eat those too. It’s definitely too late here for that at this time of year.
