Frogger, I just can't but help to ask. WHO HAVE YOU BEEN SELLING YOUR SANG TO OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS? Seriously man! If you aint just prankin I hope you can see the humor in this. Im just LMAO. NO OFFENSE INTENDED
i take no offense to it and i know i hear lots of people saying it isn't sang i have been selling and hunting sang for years and i have never run across anything that favored sang like this i also dug several pieces today that i know without a doubt are sang they are several 5 prongs going go back tomorrow and take some pics of the plants actually standing in its \"golden color\" the pics of theplant here was dug several days before i knew about this sight but you don't offend me at all but i am currently looking at all options on it because it looks and taste and even smells like sang
This is Spikenard for sure Frogger. In one of the pictures you can see the flower stems with out the berries. The berries ripen in late August. The alternate leaves with the unusaul dark purple stems,it's the real thing. A&W
will be interested in buying from you.
This is a member of the ginseng family(Araliaceae),it's Araia racemosa a plant that I look for to figure soil conditions for sang.
Rootbeer is made from this,and some sore throat meds. Makes a good tea to.
If it is elderberry, the only edible part is the berry; everything else contains cyanide, including the root - just like rhubarb.
My dad told me when I was a kid, stories about fathers making elderberry whistles for their kids, and the young'uns dying. Took them a long time to realize it was the cyanide in the cambium bark that was doing it.
Unless one is 100% certain of what one is digging and selling, one should never sell it. It reminds me of a story I read in Outdoor Life, back in the 80's:
A group of outdoorsmen were camping in the Northern wilderness. One of them found some wild onions and added them to the stew. Soon afterward, everyone began to puke, including the author. Turns out the \"onions\" were in fact, death camass.
