30-Second Greenbrier Tips


Courtesy of Amy Crowell

The best place to find the thickest, most tender greenbrier tips is near water, where the plants have received adequate moisture. Gather as much of the tender, new-growing tips as possible for this vegetable side dish. Be sure to gather from greenbrier (Smilax species) that has both thorns and tendrils. There are look-alike plants lacking thorns and tendrils that are toxic!
