They have a reputation of 'Stay clear' but like anything they have their Achilles' heel and it's literally at their feet, right next to the ground.

Few years back I had learned about their blood purifying and urinal tract he heeling benefits. Then I brewed herbal tea, mixed it in fried patties and more.

Today I picked a few and haven't used yet.

The trick is to get them into the water without touching the leafs. Once their immersed in either cold or warm water they don't "bite" anymore.

With bare hands I collected some.
