Scalloped Cattails* (recipe from USA)

Scrape off 2 cups cattail flowers and put them into a bowl with 2 beaten eggs, 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/2 t sugar and nutmeg, a 1/2 t also of black pepper. Blend well and scald 1 cup milk which is added slowly to the cattail mixture and blended. Pour the mixture into a greased casserole and top with 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese and add a dab of butter. Bake 275 degrees for 30 minutes.

Cattail Pollen Biscuits (recipe from USA)

The green bloom spikes turn a bright yellow as they become covered with pollen. Put a large plastic bag over the head (or tail) and shake. The pollen is very fine, resembling a curry-colered talc powder. Pancakes, muffins and cookies are exellent by subsituting pollen of the wheat flour in any recipe. Try these Cattail Pollen Biscuits. Mix 1/4 cup cattail pollen, 1 3/4 cups flour, 3 t baking powder, 1 t salt, 4 T shortening, 3/4 cup milk. Bake, after cutting out biscuits, in 425-degree oven for 20 minutes. For an even more golden tone, you may add an additional 1/4 cup of pollen.

Cattail Pollen Pancakes (recipe from USA)

Mix 1/2 cup pollen, 1/2 cup flour, 2 T baking powder, 1 t salt, 1 egg, 1 scant cup mik, 3 T bacon drippings. Pour into a hot skillet or griddle in dollar, 4-inch pancake amounts. They are better yet when topped with an elderberry syrup or when a few dried elderberries are added.

Cattail Casserole
(recipe from USA)

2 cups scrapped spikes
1 cup bread crumbs
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper
1 onion diced
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Combine all ingredients in a casseroles dish and place in an oven set to 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve when piping hot. Feel free to add sliced hot peppers or bell peppers for a contrast in color and flavor. Anything that will go good with corn will make a good addition to this casserole. Extra casserole freezes easily and stores for 6-8 months.

Cattail Flour
(recipe from USA)

Dry the peeled roots (peel roots while they are wet--they are
difficult to peel if allowed to dry). Chop roots into small pieces,
and then grind or pulverize them. When the long fibers are removed,
the resultant powder can be used as flour.

*Cattail-Typha latifolia
