An awesome winter root...AKA winter asparagus according to our European customers.


So what does it taste like?

The clue might be in its nickname. Salsify (Sahl-seh-fee) is known as the oyster plant or oyster vegetable. These giant pencils are members of the dandelion family, a Mediterranean plant with a delicate taste, ever so slightly sweet, some say slightly reminiscent of oyster.

Many liken it to an artichoke instead, however.


Salsify are boiled, steamed, fried, baked or pureed into soups.

Salsify pairs well with dairy (like butter, cream and cheese) and with strong herbs and flavorings (think garlic, onions), as well as with pork and chicken.
