Lilium Inter Spinas

Speaking of adventurous cooking, did you know that the day lily is edible? Not the true lilies, which are certainly not! But the day lily is a food with an ancient pedigree in Europe and Asia.

I learned this tonight, when my wife made us Day Lily Blossom Fritters stuffed with jalapenos, bacon, and cheese.

These things are fantastically good.

More on the topic here.

UPDATE: Still more adventure.

Interesting! I used to grow day lilies when we live in NC before the VES was born. I may have to add them to our growing garden of flowers, fruits and vegetables.
