Ingredients:
Milkweed buds
Boiling water
Butter, to taste
Directions:
Unopened buds are delicious when cooked but must be treated first to
remove bitterness. Put them in a pot, pour on boiling water, boil one
minute, drain, and pour on more boiling water. Repeat this process
three times or until no bitterness remains when you taste them. Cook
them a little longer until just tender and serve with butter. Reader
Jean McLain of Peoria, IL wrote "The Herb Companion" and asked: "Any
ideas what can be done to use milkweed blossoms? The fragrance is
musky but not unpleasant. Could they be used in moth-repellant bags?"
HC responded with the above recipe and said they could find no mention
of any use of the blossoms as a moth repellent. From "In Basket:
Letters from Our Readers" in "The Herb Companion." Dec. 1992/Jan.
