Green briar/ saw briar tips sautéed in butter always get a funny look when I serve them . Then they taste them and wonder why they have fought them all their life.
Don't know how I missed this one yesterday. Just plain ol' green briars? @baymule needs to hear about this one! I do have some green briars way out on the back fence that I occasionally battle with because they want to climb on the electric fence. It would be poetic justice to get my revenge by eating 'em, lol!

i forgot about mustard and strawberries. :)
Yikes! Ok I'll try that one, but, ahem, not looking forward to it! :lol:

I like salty and sweet together, like pretzels and ice cream, salted caramel, and salt on several fruits. (watermelon, oranges, apples...)

strawberry jam and mustard make the start of a good bbq sauce. :) that is if you like mustard and strawberries to begin with. :) i wouldn't go straight fresh strawberries and mustard on the first try for this combination. don't want to shock the monkey.

i wanted something crunchy last night after my main part of the evening meal so i made up some mustard honey pretzels with a bit of hot sauce and mushroom flavored soy sauce. we have a large bag of old pretzels that need to be eaten up so i can have some of those to get rid of them but i have to use them as my main carbs for the meal.

Yes just plain old green briars. Take your thumb nail and test it tell it's good and tender. Then just pinch it off . While roaming my woods I often eat them raw.
Just for the record a South American type roots ( dried and roasted) is what makes saspirrella .

I snack on green briar tips, they are good. I've sauteed them with butter and garlic too, they taste close to asparagus.

Rattlesnake just was too bony for my liking. Frog legs are ok. I try everything at least once.

Chicken feet I just don't understand anymore than I understand pigs feet. It's all just mostly cartilage and such. I have tried both. I'd rather keep the chicken feet for stock. If I can ever find cow feet, I have a recipe from an old cookbook for cow's foot jelly I want to try.

I take all bones from the butcher for stock use. I have cooked marrow bones for eating, though. I have some antique marrow spoons.
