  • 4 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 small glass dry white wine

  • nutmeg
  • pepper

Instructions

  1. Rinse and brush the salsify because the roots can be very sandy and dirty. Then peel them.

  3. Rinse them well under cold running tap water again. Make sure that all the sand and dirt are totally washed off. While peeling the salsify, let the peeled roots soak in some water with half of the lemon juice. This keeps them from oxidation that makes the white salsify yellow once they are peeled.

  5. Then chop the peeled salsify into smaller even bits. Pour the vegetable oil in a large non-stick pan or wok and place it over high heat until hot. Add the chopped salsify and season with a pinch of pepper, salt and nutmeg.
