My father spent a decade living in a small Soviet establishment in Siberia. Now, I'm not sure which variety of the Broadleaf Plantain grows out
there, but it is called Podoroshnik, which means "Along the road." From my father's experience in Siberia, he swears by three things: the
Podoroshnik, Vodka, and Urine. I can assure you he could live off just that and outlive all of us.
Anyway, when we moved to New Joisey when I
was a kidlet, he used to point it out to me when we were walking through the park, and collect it to later shove in my mouth or blend into some tonic
mixed with vodka.
I find it pretty interesting that when you try to do a search on the Broadlead Plantain, it mostly takes you to websites on how to kill it because
it's some "foul garden weed." Seems like anything that's good for you gets thrown under the bus for something more tasty or aesthetically
