Milkweed is a wonderful wild food that is relatively unknown. It is abundant and makes a delicious tender vegetable similar in flavour to green beans when prepared properly. We take summer harvested small milkweed pods, prepare them through a process of leaching to make them edible and pickle them in a standard pickling brine of apple cider vinegar, pickling spice and our organically grown garlic. These soft pickles make an interesting addition to pickle trays and cheese platters, as a cocktail garnish, and they are also wonderful on sandwiches and burgers and their tenderness allows them not to 'slide out' like a traditional pickle can sometimes do. They make a wonderful conversation starter at parties!
Our milkweed pods are harvested in large old fields that have never been sprayed and are harvested in away that does not harm the plant or the Monarch Butterflies that rely on them.
