Cous Biscuitroot Earrings feature an imprint from a Lomatium Cous specimen. This native Wyoming plant belongs to the carrot family. It is also known as biscuitroot or desert parsley. Historically, the roots were peeled and eaten fresh in the spring, or dried, ground, and patted into cakes to store for later use. They were eaten dry or boiled in water to make a “mush.” These roots resemble a sweet potato, while the foliage definitely looks like parsley.
