      Hej,

      Can anyone evaluate the following from
      http://www.ibiblio.org/pfaf/cgi-bin/arr_html?Arundo+donax&CAN=COMIND

      :

      "Edible Uses
      Leaves; Root.
      Rhizome - raw or cooked[84]. The rhizome can be dried and ground into
      a powder to make bread, usually in conjunction with cereal flours[7,
      K]. It can also be roasted or boiled[84].

      Leaves - cooked as a potherb[84]. They are very bitter[177]. The
      young shoots are used[177]."

      Was this a famine food or was it ever a staple amongst some people?
      Any ideas?

      Since it is a "noxious weed" in America, could it be harvested
      for ... food??
