Burdock Root is the Bonny to dandelion’s Clyde, but just what is it exactly we hear you ask? Well, it’s a relative of the common sunflower, with a number of pleasing nicknames. Also known as Gobo, Lappa, Happy Major and Beggar’s Buttons; Burdock Root is popular in Japanese cuisine, where it’s often fried up in the traditional dish Kinpira Gobo, or chopped up alongside other stir fry favourites.

Our burdock root is grown by Jan van Geffen in the Flevopolder area of Holland, an area reclaimed from the Zuidersea in the 1950's and 1960's. We get it from Holland as it's just not popular enough to grow on this island (something that totally baffles us as we love the stuff). Polder is the Dutch word for land reclaimed from the sea and most of Jan's farm lies two to three metres below sea level. Along with the newly popular black salsify, Jan also grows Jerusalem artichokes, Hamburg parsley and Parsnips.
