Queen Anne’s Lace (3/5)

List item

Queen Anne’s Lace is a wild carrot plant. Be very careful in identifying this plant because there are lookalikes that are not safe to eat! The leaves of wild carrot can be eaten the same as leaves of cultivated carrots. Some people use them to make pesto. The root can be dug up and cooked but it isn’t as nice as the carrots we eat today.

  1. Yes, so true! I think perhaps wild carrot gets used more as a medicine or a survival food. The uncultivated root is woody and not sweet like our cultivated carrot. And since most of us think mostly of the root, it’s easy to be disappointed by wild carrot as a food.
