It’s that time of year that I’m foraging in my yard for edibles. The new cactus pads are starting, so I’m harvesting them. And I’ve been waiting to see if the yucca was going to put out a bloom stalk. Last year I wanted to try yucca blossoms, and my plants didn’t produce stalks. This year is a different story. I plucked a couple blossoms and tasted them, and they are tender and delicious. We had them alone as a salad, then as part of a salad. Because they are mild flavor, I used an oil and vinegar that wouldn’t overpower their flavor.
It’s also interesting to add them to soups, as floating garnish on top.
