Thistle Seeds


I knew thistles were edible, I’ve tried the stems blanched and know the leaves can be more trouble than they’re worth however until a couple of weeks ago I didn’t know about thistle seeds until I saw a video by MayeuxMinistries on YouTube (excellent channel btw). Not only edible and very good for you but very medicinal also I’ll let you the reader Google the info or watch the videos (I highly recommend the videos).
So last weekend I went out with the boys to see if we could find some and try, now I tried these raw on the spot nutty but a little bitter. MayeuxMinistries recommends roasting a little first and I can’t help but think it can only improve the taste it definitely can’t hurt it much Open-mouthed smile.

You can just see the seeds at the ends of the fluff
