Baked Burdock Root Recipe from Britain
This is a traditional British recipe for a classic dish of wild burdock
root wrapped in burdock leaves and baked in foil parcels.

Burdock is a biennial plant and the root is best dug up during the autumn
of their first year (you cannot mistake them because of the roots). The
roots themselves can go down very deep so you will need a spade and they
are easiest dug up in sandy soil. A single root will provide a substantial

1 large burdock root (about 700g to 900g)
6 burdock leaves

Wash the burdock root thoroughly then wrap in the leaves before wrapping in
aluminium foil. Place in an oven pre-heated to 190C [375F] and roast for
about 70 to 90 minutes, or until very soft. Allow to cool slightly, remove
from the foil and leaf wrapping, peel away the outer skin and serve.
Burdock can also be baked directly in the coals of a barbecue.
