Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
The shoots and tubers from daylilies offer us fresh local greens as early as April and May. The leaves, stems and tubers are excellent in stir fries, steamed and any other way onions or leeks are used.
The fruit is months away still, but late spring is the perfect time to harvest, and preserve, grape leaves!
