  Re: [Aroid-l] Tasting Lemna minor

I really enjoy experience new tastes and foods. However, Lemna are fast
growing plants that are used to remove metal traces from ponds (including
toxic metals). I am part of a project that studies the ability of Lemna and
Pistia to grow and remove metallic traces from contamined ponds, so they can
be completely removed if you take plants out of the water. That means that
you should be worried not only with the extra proteins from worms and water
bugs but with what kind of neurotoxic or carcinogenic metals you are eating.
If you are planning to eat Lemna, follow Julius' recipe (seems tasty...),
but cultivate your own plants in safe water.

Very best
