Burdock Root Salad

Vegetables
Historic

Peeled burdock roots, soaked and sauteed. Served cold with breadcrumbs and sugar (Murrell, 1638)

'Acetaria: A Discourse of Sallets' by John Evelyn (Evelyn 1699) has; "The Lapatha Personata (common Burdock ) comes now and then to the best Tables, about April, and when young, before the Burrs and Clots appear, being strip'd, and the bitterness soaked out, treated as the Chardoon, is eaten in Poiverade; Some also boil them."
