Historically, indigenous cultures of North America consumed the starchy rhizomes of solomon's seal as a potato-like food to make breads and soups. The young shoots are also edible, raw or boiled for an asparagus-like food. The plant gets its name from a scar that develops on the rhizome in the fall that resembles the ancient seal of King Solomon.
