to much time on my hands
Was just wondering if any of you dig roots for tea or to add to soups? I have to travel to Arlington Cemetery in two weeks and will be taking along the spade to dig some tree roots in WV for tea. This is the best time for digging roots. All the rich sap in the trees are down in the roots during the winter.

Just enjoying the preparation.

Way to much free time!

I grew up in Southern WV and we dug sasafras (spelling?) but mostly in the summer. My grandma would make tea out of it, it tasted a little like rootbeer without the fizz. Very Happy
