Young hop shoots may be trimmed and lightly steamed to be served in an omelet. Tasty? Discuss.

Definitely tasty. I quite like them raw in salads too.

Tasty indeed. When I trimmed mine back this spring, I just ate the shoots raw.

I've put them in a stir fry and a risotto too, and they go great with garlic scapes. Mainly I use hop shoots that I forage from wild hops.

gently steamed with a vinagrette, just like good asparagus.
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

I've had them pickled - very nice.
