Not only is it edible, but it's delicious

My own wine recipe is kicking around here somewhere; there's also Steve Brills website that has some ideas for it:

But really, it's best to stew some young stems down with a little sugar, give it a taste, and decide to go from there. I like it rather like rhubarb, but a but more tart, and a bit more pleasant.
