Hupȟéstola — Edible Yucca Flowers!

Did you know that the flowers of Hupȟéstola (Yucca glauca) are edible? They taste kind of like broccoli, but a bit more mild, and with a slight nectar sweetness.

I’ve heard of people cooking with them, but I usually just eat them when I’m out on the prairie. I have never managed to refrain from eating them long enough to bring them home and experiment in the kitchen, so you’ll have to consult other sources for information on that.
