Eringo root (Erygium Maritimum)

The root of a plant called 'sea holly' which was popular in England between the 16th and 18th centuries. It was either candied or pickled as had the reputation of being an aphrodisiac.

It was also eaten as a vegetable - being either boiled or roast, and tastes rather like parsnip. See 'Aphrodisiacs'
