Japanese Knotweed Crumble anyone?

japanese knotweed crumble

Japanese Knotweed Crumble anyone? If you are a forager or just like to use natures produce, then these recipes are for you.

If you catch Japanese knotweed in its early growth phase (April to June depending on how mild the weather is) and as long as it has not already been chemically treated then you could rustle up an amazing feast using this problem plant.

Japanese Knotweed can taste a little like rhubarb with a lemony flavour and as such can be made into a chutney (knotweed and shallot jelly to be exact) which is said to be delicious served on an oatcake with a bit of crumbly white cheese.
