Garden-fresh Bud--Bud What Is It?

Calling all foodies: who can be the first one to guess what this bud is? It's used in cooking something very familiar to us all--but seldom is it seen.* We just harvested this from the garden this weekend.

* Unless you are a master brewer.


My friend Malan knew it immediately. "Hops," he said. "Related to cannibis botanically." Things that make you go hmmm.
