FTFA: A 35-year-old Bellingham man, David Westerlund, spent hours in an emergency room April 25 after he put what he thought was a carrot in a bowl of fermented vegetables.

What the hell was he making? They use that term in the video too, but not the name of the dish.

It grows wild in coastal Norcal too. Saw a old woman cutting the flowers last week by the side of the road. Even the sap is poisonous.

The one on the left's hemlock, the one of the right's wild carrot.

Does anyone else remember that book about the girl and the Oregeon Trail? She also went to chop a "wild carrot" for food and discovered that her "carrot" was actually hemlock (it had many roots instead of one.)

Can't remember if any characters died. I seem to recall her sister got really sick.

How to tell wild carrot from hemlock and fool's parsley:

Both poison hemlock and fool's parsley smell nasty; just roll some leaves between your thumb and forefinger, and smell.

Wild carrot, especially the root, smells like (you guessed it) carrots. Also, the stem of the wild carrot is hairy, and the stem of poison hemlock is smooth.


I got that from http://www.carrotmuseum.co.uk/queen.html

In other news, there's a carrot museum.

If you're more interested in potatoes, there's a Potato Museum in Carleton Co., New Brunswick, Canada, home of the McCain Foods Group.

I tried the frozen French-fried sweet potatoes recently. Yum! Makes a change from french-fried potatoes and they're baked so you don't get so much oil.

The root of the wild carrot and its flowers are edible but only when young--the roots get mighty tough as they age.

We call them Queen Anne's Lace up North. The flowers really do like sort of like lace doilies.

French fried flowers? Exactly how does that work?

Hey, I think my cat ate some of that earlier. At least that's what came up.

But at least it was organic and all-natural hemlock, so it was good for you, right?
 
2010-05-11 01:03:04 PM
I LOL at the stupid.

This is wild carrot:

Also known as Queen Anne's Lace. Whe I was a kid I called them Tortilla Flowers because they smell just like corn tortillas.

THIS is Hemlock:

8.5 tailed fox: But at least it was organic and all-natural hemlock, so it was good for you, right?


This reminds me of a late night commercial I saw. The whole commercial was a shot of a bottle of this vitamin (I think) in a "babbling brook" (river rock with clear water running through it). Part way through, they start flashing text across the screen, "ALL NATURAL" and "NO CHEMICALS". All I could think at the time was, "Are they selling me a bottle of hard vacuum?"

Um, maybe something like "the plant he thought was a wild carrot killed him with acute constipation..."

"no shiat, Hemlock!"
