Re: Sassafras


Yeah, when I lived in Maryland, my kids would bring home roots they'd dug in the woods. They'd say "Da-a-ad [that's three syllables], make us some tea, puh-leeze! [that's two syllables]" I think we always had a pitcher of it in the fridge from May to October.

Well, I called them and they don't. But the referred me to somebody who
MIGHT sell them. They were not in but one of the workers took a message
for me. I'll let you know. THANKS. When I lived in Georgia, they were
all over the back roads..like weeds. Just little seedlings on the side
of the road. I'd stop, pick one or two out of the ground, take my pocket
knife out and whittle the bark down to the soft part and put it in hot,
hot water to steep. It is so good.

Jesse, does your local Soil Conservation District have a tree program?
When I lived on the farm, mine did. Once a year they had all kinds of
trees available--free. From the map in my old, old tree book, it looks
like Sassafras albidum is native to southeastern Oklahoma.

Anybody on this list have wild sassafras trees growing nearby? I am
craving sassafras tea (yes, I know they say it is a carcinogen...but I
don't drink it very often and native americans drank it all the time)
and I would really like to find a small tree to grow in my yard.
