Here are two ways to use black yucca seeds in your not-so-survivalist cooking. First, I gently toasted the seeds in a dry frying pan on the stove. Then I sprinkled some on a salad, seen below. The next day I got a wild hare (hair? ) and ground them up as a coffee substitute. I confess I did add a little real coffee as well. The result was great. Tasted like toasty coffee! Ok, friends and neighbors, please send me more suggestions for cooking with yucca or other native plants and uses for sotol!
