You say be cautious in use of wild ginger. Why? Never killed ayone in your family did it? Same with Polk. Everyone says boil 2 or 3 times and then eat. Heck, by the time you do that you have cookd out all the good vitamins, minerals, etc. We always threw it into the pot with all the rest of the greens with a bit of salt pork or ham, cooked the whole mess down and then ate it with cornbread. In the Ozarks, we don't use sugar in cornbread either.

Hi Dordee,
You're right, never killed anyone in my family, none of it did. But I have to err on the side of caution, you know?

Good for you and cornbread!
Merry Christmas.
