Knotweed - Celebrate new, delicious (and invasive) flavors!

Eating is believing.  
Japanese Knotweed is an introduced species to our ecosystem.  It is a powerful plant with a root system strong enough to buckle sidewalks.  It has crept onto our farm from who-knows-where about five years ago.  Rather than shake our fists, we pulled out our harvest knives and began taste testing the stuff.  Celebrated in Japan - it really is quite delicious.

Here is a link to learn more about the plant and some links to recipes.
