Eating Your Daylilies?

I came across an article recently in Natural Home that suggested that you can eat your daylilies...and actually gave a recipe!












So here goes:

Daylily Bud Saute

Ingredients:
2 dozen daylily buds                                      
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup olive oil                                           
3 eggs
dash of nutmeg                                             
salt and pepper
I clove garlic, finely minced

Cut the base off the buds. 


Sauté the garlic in a small amount of olive oil. 


Beat eggs and mix enough flower to make a thin batter. 


To this add the sautéed garlic, 1/8 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and the dash of nutmeg. 


Add a teaspoon of milk if the batter is too thick. 


Dip the buds in the batter and sauté until a golden brown consistency.
