Burdock is running riot, over here.
I did try this recipe, and it's unfortunately not delicious enough for me to cook up the hundreds of burdock plants at my disposal, but it did feel nice to eat this pest. I might do it again, just for spite.
1. Get a burdock root. Peel away the outside to reveal a white inner core.
2. Wash it, cut it into 1-inch lengths, and boil it for half an hour, changing the water halfway through.
3. Coat it with butter, lemon, and salt, and then eat it angrily.
It's not bad, actually. It's not particularly good either, but it's not bad.
