Time for them to show up from the ground.
Took some when I walked around, we call them "Fukino tou " in Japanese. Local people here call them "Chanmero".
Fried them - Tempura. As butterbur flower stalks taste a bit bitter, I think some people like them but some don't. In my opinion, it's good to have some, but if it's too much, it's too much lol.....
While butterbur flower stalks were fried, some apple pies were cooked in the oven. Those apple pies are the last ones for this season. We won't have any until the apple harvest time in this coming autumn - half year ahead.
It's a bit hard work to keep the glass of the oven clean all the time. You have to clean it while it stays hot. Once it gets cold, hard to clean it out.
