I think I'm missing something here, but can you eat marsh marigold raw? And what about cowslip? If so, which parts of it are edible?

Hello!

We would love to have this spotting be a part of our mission on the distribution of look-alike buttercups. The marsh marigold looks similar to the lesser celandine (which is considered invasive here in the U.S) and many people get them confused. Feel free to join!
