Boiled Devil's Claw Pods
As noted above in the titled these are also called "Unicorns" because of the long "tails" on the pods that resemble a single horn as they grow. Really, to me, they look like fat elongated okra pods; they are "fuzzy" like okra and can be treat in exactly the same way when cooking (though I'm not sure that they are a good substitute in gumbo).
Very young Devil's Claw pods no more than 2 inches in length
Large Pan Boiling Water
Butter or favorite nut oil or butter
1. Wash the pods under cold running water, scrapping with a vegetable brush.
2. Add a large amount of salt to boiling water (at least 1 tbsp.), plunge the pods in and boil until just tender.
3. Toss i melted butter, nut or butter, serve with lemon wedges if liked.
Note: these pods can be a bit bitter, some people like to blanch them once in plain boiling water and then boil them in the salted water.
