Very good article on Eating Milkweed
Click here for a great article on How to Eat the Common Milkweed
Just came across this article on eating Milkweed. I too, first learned from Samuel Thayer’s book "The Forager’s Harvest", that Milkweed is good to eat.
I highly recommend both of Samuel's books as he actually eats a lot of wild foods frequently, is from Wisconsin, and has been doing this since he was a kid.
He has the most extensive information on each plant he talks about in his book that I've come across.
His newest book is Nature's Garden: A Guide to Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Edible Wild Plants.
