‘Sawtaying’ the summer bounty

    Every year at this time, I point out that the ripening berries in the Ozarks should be put to good use, and the same thing with wild poke, from which poke greens, utilizing young leaves, are cooked. If you are someone who enjoys hunting mushrooms, I can tell you about something much easier to find, and yet just as good to eat. The abundant, orange day-lilies are everywhere, and blooming now. Amongst those blooms are the buds, about three- or four-inches long, which will open soon.  Collect those buds; roll them in eggs, then in flour. Add pepper or light seasoning like garlic or whatever you like, and fry them in bacon grease or olive oil. My gosh they are good.
