Join Sunny Savage on a foraging adventure near Cass Lake, Minnesota. Yeehaw, it is Cattail shoots time in northern Minnesota.
In this video, you will see how to identify Cattails shoots (along with a poisonous lookalike plant), harvest them, process them, and then cook them into a soup. Cattails are a delicious food, wildly abundant, generally found throughout the world.
Curried Cattail Soup
3 T butter
1 small onion, minced
1 1/2 cup cattail shoots, chopped
1 1/2 T curry powder
1 T cattail rhizome flour, or wheat flour
