Horsetail shoots

Horsetail shoots taste mild and pleasant. Various of my compatriots likened the flavor to:

  • Green onions
  • Asparagus
  • Green beans
  • Apples
  • A non-flavor that would soak up other flavors

Despite our collective inability to describe what exactly it was we were tasting, we all liked it. After we’d all tried a nibble of raw shoots, I steamed the remainder for a few minutes, tossed in some bacon crumbs and fancy salt, and blessed it with a squeeze of lemon.
By the time I realized this picture was out of focus, they were eaten.
