I've heard Hostas can be cooked and eaten? Does anyone here eat them?
Akkk... that would be like canabalism.
They are my babies!! :) ROFL
I agree with Joan...
In short.... yes.
Personally I wouldn;t, there are too many other food sources out there for me to start grazing with the deer, but yes, there are those that seem to think they are "edgy" or something that do.
BTW If I posted what I really thought of the person who started the thread I linked below I would be banned from GW forever. Oh and take note of the blankety-blank who said they look better cooked than they do in my linked photo!

i saw it used in a bread instead of rhubarb ...
Ken - do you mean bread pudding? I have never heard of rhubarb bread..... but I have heard of a rhubarb/strawberry bread pudding.
i am blanking.. not pudding.. not pie.. a sort of coffee cake thingee.. technical term there .... it will come to me.. sooner or later ...
or see the link ...
i mean really.. by the time they smother rhubarb with a 40 pound sack of sugar.. you could use an old tire..and still a have a decent coffee cake ...

Martha Stewart once had an article in her magazine about cooking hostas!

i knew i would figure it out sooner or later...
PS:... zuchini.. rhubarb.. its all puke fodder to me.. lol ...
Really Teresa? I have the issue where she uses large hosta leaves as a garnish on the plate instead of kale, but I have never heard of her cooking them! can you link an article?
I can't link the article. It was at least 6 years ago - perhaps longer. And it wasn't so much of an article, but rather in the part of the mag where people ask questions and an explanation of 5-6 paragraphs is the response.
But here is a recipe for Rhubarb Bread - no hostas needed!

I sent you a seperate email Alexa. The link above does not contain the buttermilk rhubarb quick bread I wanted to send.
No hostas being eaten here folks!
some peeps 'say' that some of the flowers taste peppery ... i am not sure.. but maybe the fragrant ones ...
use them on a salad.. for the fragrance and the pepper..
Apparently the New England Hosta Society has eaten hostas. Here is a link that suggests a Cream of Lancifolia Soup and a Hostakopita - as in Greek pie using hostas in place of the spinach.

Every time I look at healthy hosta, I start thinking that with a little olive oil and garlic...
Horrors!! That sounds terribly cruel...
