    Default Shungiku - cooking the chrysanthemums

    Those of you who have read my previous forum posts will know that I'm a traditional type of grower sticking to the tried and tested veg.

    This year I've just sown something that's a little bit off the mainstream.

    SHUNGIKU or Chrysanthemum Coronarium. Which is an edible chrysanthemum.

    The thing is I haven't got a clue how to use it. The instructions say its ideal for chopsuey greens but I don't really cook much American food except burgers so does anyone grow it or cook with it?

    Just after ideas for recipes and ways to use it.

    I've grown it but didn't like the smell/taste - too overpowering.
    Can't give you recipes as it didn't get to that stage!

    Lots of recipes if you goggle
