No, but I agree that it is the cooking that makes B.S. delectable.
Growing up, my mother never raised them. In fact upon your inquiry I
consulted her and for the first time found her lacking in appropriate
gardening knowledge. At any rate, and I do not recall the motivation,
a couple months ago I bought some, cleaned off the outer leaves, cut
them in half, cooked them in olive oil and sea salt in a pan,
sizzling, a few slightly browned, removed from heat. Found them so
sweet and delectable I burned my mouth from the big ones, eating them
