I was digging up some overgrown salad leaves today and discovered some roots which I initially thought were carrots but have done a bit of googling and decided they must be chervil (which was one of the varieties listed on the seed packet). Can I eat these and if so how should I cook them?
If you're sure you can ID it as that, then yes; It's used a lot in France:
Thanks Bob. I'm not sure whether I'll risk it or not - I had a very bad experience with something that I misidentified as parsnips a few years back so am now extremely cautious!
