So while I was berry picking Friday I gathered a bowl full.
How beautiful is this chair? Husband and I quit smoking when I got pregnant and now these chairs hardly ever get used. They were my smokin' chairs.
Anyway. It seems like the flowers should be good for something. I know they are edible. Most recipes call for treating them pretty much like you would a zucchini flower - as in frying them. It's really hot outside, and we don't have air conditioning so that's out. I adore hot and sour soup and from what I've read daylilies are a pretty important part of getting the flavor of the soup "correct". What the heck.
I didn't know if I should gather the flowers or the buds, so I picked both.
It looks like tiny bananas. The brown things are shiitake mushrooms I grew.
