Family: Daisy Family Habitat: On the edges or cultivated field, fallow fields, meadows, vacant lots, along the roadside. Season: Shoots - Spring through Fall Galls - Summer Flowers - mid through late Summer
Harvesting notes:Galls (shown below) occur when an insect interferes with the plant in order that it might take advantage of the sugar supply within the plant. The result is a sweet and succulent vegetable that takes a pleasant aroma characteristic of goldenrod.
Culinary notes: The flowers are a stunning addition to salads or as a garnish to give the finishing touch and burst of color to a dish. With a flavor similar to chamomile and dill, goldenrod can also be used to impart a sweet, autumnal flavor into savory or sweet dishes and pairs particularly well with creamy soft cheeses.
