Is Japanese knotweed driving you wild?Don’t curse it – cook it – I never imagined this was edible, we’ve got major invasions of it around us!

@TheDimPause A word of caution:

Knotweed is used in land reclamation projects because it pulls up toxic compounds from the soil. You'd better be sure you have a batch growing on clean soil before you chose to eat it.

@paladin1 Yes, and because it's classed as an invasive, unwanted species in the UK you can never be sure patches growing in the 'wild' haven't been treated with weedkiller. Wouldn't want to ingest that!
