That’s about one-third of my crop of salsify.

Salsify is a root vegetable, and is sometimes called the oyster plant, since some people think it tastes like oysters. Having never tasted an oyster I can’t say whether or not salsify tastes like them, but I can say that I like the way salsify tastes. It has a mild flavor that is hard to describe (at least for someone who has never tried an oyster). It was very good boiled, and pretty good in soup with some oyster mushrooms and some vegetable broth: a no-oyster oyster soup!
