Day lilies are incredibly sweet, like honey. Pick unsprayed ones once they have opened for those brief few hours. Remove the stamens and make sure there are no insects.


  • 2 to 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • lb [1 kg] mustard greens or other


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mustard or other greens, garlic, and chile, with sea salt to taste. After 5 or so minutes when the greens are wilted, add the day lilies on top and let them wilt also.

Serve the lilies hot with steamed rice or boiled tapioca.
