The burdock belongs to the thistles group. It gets its name of “Dock” from its large leaves (as large as rhubarb leaves at the base) and the “Bur” from the little hooked prickles which stick like velcro to everything they come in contact with.
In Japan, it is cultivated for its roots and, after three months of growth, used as a vegetable in stir-fries. It has a sweet and mucilaginous taste. Golden Field'sburdock is grown in New Zealand on certified organic farms and is harvested early autumn. It used to be a traditional combination in Britain, but nowadays only a dandelion & burdock artificially flavoured soft drink can still be bought.
