Re: [Wild-Foodies-of-Philly] Pokeweed root

I would call the National Poison Control center for advice.  Phytollacatoxin is a toxin, a poison.  People eat poke leaves but only (usually) after boiling in several changes of water.

Subject: [Wild-Foodies-of-Phi­lly] Pokeweed root

Hi all,
I hope it's ok to post a question to this list--not sure where else to 
get good info.
Does anyone know about safety eating the root of pokeweed? My 
mother-in-law dug up pokeweed roots last week and soaked the sliced root 
in water for several days, stir-fried it and ate it. Then she didn't 
feel very well. Would this be an allergic reaction or possibly poisoning 
that needs treatment?

thanks in advance!
