Boil the young leaves and stems at least twice or three times, throwing away the water from each boiling. The dark shiny berries are also edible if cooked. Do not eat the roots, they are poisonous, or any of the plant if red or purple is anywhere on the plant. Also only eat young leaves, not old ones. Know what you are doing with this plant!
