Root Vegetables

t writes:

Celeriac is legal. However, you should go slow and be careful. It is very fibrous, even if it doesn't seem so when you steam it and mash it.

Burdock Root is illegal. It contains inulin (FOS) and mucilage.

Black radish is legal - but again, very fibrous, so go slow. (good for clearing the sinuses.. mmmmm)

Rutabagas are legal - but again, fibrous.

French artichokes are those green things you steam, then dip the leaves in lemon butter and scrape off with your teeth.. And they have the edible hearts and inedible choke.

Jerusalem artichokes are actually a tuber, and are not legal.
