In my book, anything's got to be better than dockans - a plant with few positive uses, none of which ought to be culinary. However, I have heard that round your way (Yorks/Lancs) there is a "delicacy" called 'dock pudding'. And that there are competitions for the best dock pudding. I also heard that one year there was a stooshie because a young lad added garlic to his, and it won. When the garlic addition was found out, his prize was removed because he had deviated from the traditional recipe.

They p*** me off. I've got them all over the rough grazing, and keep having to dig them out.

Now, on Tyneside, docken used to refer only to common dock. And common dock mings. Really nasty stuff. But curled dock, when really young, is just about edible. Just about. Some of the others, red veined dock and monks rhubarb, are also a wee bit more edible.

Can't see the point when you can just hunt out some sorrel instead. Dpack, hats off to you if you can enjoy eating dock Smile
