05/15/11 - Devil's Claw Shoots

Preston, of Wild West Seafood, also sells wild foraged products. This week he had morels and devil's claw shoots. Devil's claw is a pretty nasty looking plant, and never seemed particularly appetizing. Still, these little shoot lookd interesting. Preston says they have a pine-y flavor, and we suspect that this might be a bit much for us. Still, they'll probably be appearing on a number of spring menus along with the fiddleheads. We were tempted, by curiosity, but we'll pass for this year. There were too many other good things at the market.
