what is burdock root?

With its spiky thistle-like appearance and vibrant purple flowers, burdock is a distinctive looking plant that grows all across Europe and Asia. It’s been used in traditional remedies for centuries, with the root, leaves and seeds all used. It’s related to artichoke and has a similar sweet, earthy flavour. You may have already tasted it, if you ever drank fizzy dandelion and burdock as a child.
