milkweed preparation

so anyway, i may have euchered myself even before i started here, i placed the raw milkweed stalks/leaves in the fridge while i went to look up some milkweed info

anyway, i pre-boiled some water and then covered the milkweed parts below, i let it sit for 30 seconds, changed water and put it in the microwave again for 6 minutes

the end result was not exactly tasty

going thru my copy of ” Stalking the Wild Asparagus “,  it says that if you start with cold water, i guess the cold ” cause the bitter principle to become fixed in the cooked product ” , so again, i may have euchered myself when i put the milkweed in the fridge

yes, i’ll try again and bypass the fridge part
