This plant to be eaten at earliest stages only
The pokeweed plant is considered a toxic herb and must be prepared correctly before being eaten and is not to be eaten (under any circumstances) raw. The best way to eat the plant is to harvest it as a shoot. The shoots are boiled. The water is poured off. And boiled again. These shoots then can be cooked in a stir-fried meal. Mix the boiled shoots with eggs, (onions, garlic or star-shaped flowers from garlic). Mixed the boiled poke weed with rice , eggs, onions or garlic, in the same manner as when preparing a Chinese stir-fried dish. The Pokeweed is highly nutritious. It is great for the immune system. I had a friend who lived to be 105 years old, eating poke weed dishes and other natural foods.
Remember, never eat the pokeweed plant raw. It's toxic, when eaten raw.
