Fields of daylilies
color hillsides and yards
with carpets of orange.
They offer chefs and home cooks
some delicious recipes as well.
Daylilies are completely edible
and downright delicious . . .
the flowers, root tubers and
especially the slender flower buds.
In fact, daylily buds are often called
"poor man's asparagus."
Add flowers to a summer salad, or
sauté the buds for a delicious
addition to your next stir fry.
