    Default Japanese Knotweed: Dreadable Edible

    "DEANE"
    May 3, 2014

    Japanese Knotweed gets no respect. Nearly everywhere it grows it’s listed as a prolific, noxious, invasive, dangerous bad-for-the-world, the-sky-is-falling weed. Oh by the way, it’s edible. Might be even really healthy for you…. pesky weeds have that habit.

    Japanese Knotweed is listed by the World Conservation Union as one of the world’s worst invasive species.... About the only place where they are not upset with the plant is where it’s native, southeast Asia. What do they know the rest of the world doesn’t? It is said that Japanese Knotweed out lives the gardener and the garden.

    I take great pains to keep it off my property, but I have a friend who keeps it under control by grazing her goats on it. She welcomes my coming each spring to cut the new shoots and bring them home. I freeze them cut up in pieces and use them in stirfries throughout the year. I like the fact that they are high in resveratrol.
