To prevent salsify from turning dark, drop as soon as pared into a

mixture of flour, water and a little vinegar. After paring, cut into

slices about three inches long. Put on in prepared water and cook thirty

minutes from the time it begins to boil. Drain and serve in white sauce;

or mix butter, salt, lemon juice and parsley and serve with this.

Other Recipes


Boil and slice the salsify as in preceding recipe. Butter a baking dish;
fill it by adding alternate layers of salsify and small bits of cheese.
Season with salt, pepper and butter. Pour over it a sufficient quantity
of milk or cream to moisten thoroughly. Bake one-half hour. Bread crumbs
may be added if desired.
Wash one pound of prunes or plums and put on to boil with one pound of
brisket of beef or any fat meat; when the meat is tender add five
medium-sized sweet potatoes which have been pared and cut in small
pieces. Place the meat on top, add one-half cup of sugar and a piece of
sour salt (citric acid). Cover and bake until nicely browned. If gravy
should cook away add some warm water.

Other Recipes

Boiled Salsify

Scrape off the outer skin of the roots, cut in small pieces and throw

into water with a little vinegar to prevent turning brown. Boil at least

an hour, as they should be quite soft to be good. When done put in a

little salt codfish picked very fine. Season with butter, salt, and

cream, thickened with a little flour or cornstarch and serve with bits

of toast. The fish helps to give it a sea-flavor. Instead of fish the

juice of half a lemon may be used or it is good without any added


Other Recipes

Escalloped Salsify

Cook salsify in salted water until tender, alternate it in a baking dish

Salsify Fritters

Scrape some oyster plant and drop quickly into cold water with a few

drops of vinegar to prevent its turning dark. Boil until soft in salted

water, mash fine, and for every half pint of the pulp add one well

beaten egg, a teaspoonful of melted butter, a tablespoonful of cream, a

heaping tablespoonful of flour, salt and pepper. Drop into boiling lard

or drippings and fry brown. Or, instead of mashing the salsify after

boiling, some prefer to drain it, and to dip each piece in batter and

fry it in hot lard. Season with salt and pepper after frying, drain in a

napkin and serve hot.

Other Recipes

Fried Salsify

Scrape, cut into finger lengths and boil in salted water, drain and

a hot colander and serve.

Croquettes Of Salsify And Celeriac

Other Recipes

Salsify Or Vegetable Oyster

The best way to cook it is to parboil it, (after scraping off the

outside,) then cut it in slices, dip it into a beaten egg, and fine

bread crumbs, and fry it in lard. It is very good boiled, then stewed a

few minutes in milk, with a little butter and salt. Another way which is

very good, is to make a batter of wheat flour, milk and eggs; cut the

Salsify in thin slices, (after having been boiled tender,) put them into

the batter with a little salt; drop this mixture into hot fat, by the

large spoonful. When a light brown, they are cooked sufficiently.
