We had this vegetable for the first time last weekend in Shaker Village, KY. It was good in a casserole:
It is similar to parsnips.

UPDATE: here, More about salsify. It did kinda have an oyster/artichoke flavor. It is apparently easy to grow, and it might be an interesting addition to the garden. Also called goatsbeard.

Most strange that it should be Belgian. Salsify used to be common in the commonwealth.

The best Kentucky squash, by the way, is cushaw. You might find it at the Covington Farmers Market. It's worth seeking out.
