the cattails weren't as good as I remembered. maybe I didn't cook them properly. but the male (upper) flowers were easier to eat than the female (lower), denser, part; I could just bite down and pull out the inner stem like a skewer, whereas the female part was like a very tough corn-on-the-cob, where each bite took an effort that was mostly unrewarded.

in any case, I'm glad I collected and tried it.
