Plants you Should Know; Yellow Pond Lily
Obviously this plant is aquatic, the leaves (heart shaped) float on the surface, and have yellow waxy looking flowers.
The seeds can be parched, winnowed, then ground up into a flour, or you can fry it like popcorn.
While the root stock can be eaten like a potato. Change the water after the first boil, then boil an additional 3 minutes to help tame the flavor.
Winnowed- to blow off the chaff from the grain.
parched- drying with heat (dry roasting)
