Wild Edible and Herbal Plants: Cattails

 
Cattails are awesome and have lots of uses. Tender shoots and stalks can be eaten. Seed heads can be eaten and are similar to corn. Roots can be processed and used as a flour or a flour extender.
 
Mature heads can be used as a tender, heads can be soaked in melted animal fat or kerosene and used as a torch. Leaves (blades) can be used to make baskets. Plus cattails help treat and filter water. This is a plant that is well worth knowing about.
