Delicious berries! One of my favorites … They are high in vitamin C as well.
You can also eat the shoots when they are still young and tender — just peel them, and either eat them raw, or cook them up like you would asparagus. These too are high in Vitamin C.
The white flowers can be eat raw as well — put them on a salad to make it all nice and pretty!
The leaves are antiemetic, astringent, blood tonic and stomachic. An infusion is used internally in the treatment of stomach complaints, diarrhoea and dysentery, anaemia, the spitting up of blood and to treat vomiting. [[pfaf]]]
The large, soft leaves make an excellent toilet paper. Something about the non-waxy, ridged texture grabs the poop well. And the leaves are nice and big so you don’t get poop all over your hands!
And you can make soap by boiling the bark …
