They do stink a bit when cooked but as long as the glands are removed it's good meat. For gosh sake they are a herbivore...

I am waiting until Spring to try the other end of the cattails.  The roots already have a bad reputation.

When talking about emergency food we all should look into beans.  Lots of protein and can be grown in areas with good subsurface moisture if there is no ability to irrigate.

The absolute best way to prepare cattail is to let the marsh rabbit eat them first, then eat the marsh rabbit.....

I'm not much for 'forced patina' lipstick on my knives, but I really like your Kephart-influenced designs! :hail:   It sounds like you accept and integrate your customers' desires or suggestions, too, which is a GOOD thing.:thumbsup:  How many frogskins for one of your creations?  If you don't want to divulge that information on a public forum, I understand....send me a PM if that's the case. :popcorn:

Thank you for the response Moe.

Although I must admit I'm not sure what to think about it since you objected to statements I did not make and points I did not raise. Some of it is well, I don't know.


"You probably wouldn't look so bias if you also mentioned liberal news worthy names who went into hiding or ran to Canada to avoid having to serve,  It's not all that hard to find a few,  start with Jane Fonda,  that's an easy one."

Now, that statement is especially puzzling and while I may have a general idea about the point you're going for I don't want to  make assumptions. Is it correct to say you are referring to the VN era? If so at that time women were not subject to conscription, there were no combat assignments for female volunteers in the armed services, Jane Fonda never joined the service and never "fled to Canada". Perhaps I'm mistaken in trying to decipher your point but that statement seems a non sequitur.

You are correct however, in citing Marion Morrison's contributions to bolstering troop morale - at least for a while. Those came to an untimely (?) end when appearing in a USO show in theatrical "cowboy" attire he was booed off the stage by combat troops convalescing from wounds sustained during combat actions in the Pacific Theater during WW2.  Maybe that was a bit unfair since he was only an actor but troops at the time seemed to take offense. Just a fact. No opinion offered.


There have been many citizens in our history who have served in the Armed Forces and many who have not either by condition or choice. That's the way we used to do it when we conscritpted from the general population. Some have been conservative, some liberal, some religious, some not and just about any other way folks can be catagorized. Some served with distinction, some put in their time and some never made it home. For all of them I respect, accept and grieve as warranted.

Since Tony has left for rendezvous and can't post in his own thread, I'm wondering if there is any hope for love of cattail root cuisine on either side of the political fence.....just curious? :shrug:

  Funny that you only point to conservatives to attack,  if you had done your homework you'd have found that Clint Eastwood was 12 yrs. old in 1942,  even with parental permisson he couldn't have gotten in.
  Ronald Reagan tried four times to enlist for combat duty and was rejected because of a vision problem,  he did however serve  the war effort and achieved rank by making training films for the military.
  Marion Morison (AKA John Wayne) also tried to enlist in the three branches of the military,  he was rejected because he was 34 years old, married, and had four children when the US got into the war,  but, he also found a way to help the cause by making training films and war movies to instill pride for the military and encourage the war effort, he also was a primary in pushing war bonds,  and he nearly matched Bob Hope in making appearances and shows for our fighting men in uniform especially in combat zones.
  You probably wouldn't look so bias if you also mentioned liberal news worthy names who went into hiding or ran to Canada to avoid having to serve,  It's not all that hard to find a few,  start with Jane Fonda,  that's an easy one.
