Cossacks Asparagus

IMG_6927-001   This cattail “tongue” or pure, white tender, center section (pictured in the wood bowl) tastes somewhere between a cucumber and watermelon.  It is wonderful raw but also can be boiled and cooked like asparagus.  Since the Cossacks of Russia considered this cattail edible a delicacy, the name Cossacks asparagus is frequently used.
