Description

The root of the marsh woundwort plant is a wholesome and nutritious food similar to the vegetable plant crosne, Stachys affinis. Its tubers have a pleasant mild nutty flavour, raw or cooked, but they tastte best when prepared like asparagus. They
can also be dried and ground into a powder used for making bread. Although quite small, they are fairly smooth and produced in a reasonable quantity so are not too tricky to handle. Despite the good taste of the root, one should take care: all parts of the plant emit an unpleasant smell when bruised!
