In Winter, when it is possible to meet bushes covered with flocks of
white down, we are sure to be in front of clematis, a sort of liana of
our woods which very often hangs down from the highest leaves. In Spring
one can picks up its shoots and make a sort of bunches.
Use These shoots are boiled in abundant salted water or they can
be used to prepare omelettes with eggs and cheese. Clematis can be
sautéed with butter garlic and oil. This herb is extremely
abundant so that it is considered an infesting plant.
