Hi all - Just got back from the tour and experienced for the first time the banana-sweet taste of the honey locust tree pod!  What a great flavor!  You should try to find a tree now before it's too late.  Some of the pods are already dried out.  Just take the pod in your hand, tear it a bit and then start squeezing the green pulp out.  It's delicious!  Beware that some varieties of honey locusts don't have pods.  Anyway, now's the time to taste these delicious wild edibles.
