Poke Salad We picked a mess last week. We boil it thru 3-4 baths and then put in cast iron skillet and scramble in a dozen eggs Then Enjoy. My grandfather always said it made him ready for the summer ( After the Clean Out). Dan the Kentucky salad looks like what we have.

I generally shy away from eating poisonous plants. I'll stick to my spinach, thanks.

You would surprised at how many poisonous plants there are. Rhubarb, peaches, bananas, and cashews, all contain poisons.
