Pickled Day Lily Buds
Our Wild Foods Dinner and Program was held this past week. One of the appetizers included pickled day lily buds.A quick and easy recipe, simply harvest young tender day lily buds and drop them in your favorite jar of pickle juice. Let them marinate and pickle for several days, and then serve with pride. Of course, if you harvest the buds, the summer blooms will not be quite as abundant. We also like to use the blossoms as a garnish, or even stuffed with a herbal spread and served with crackers as shown here.
