Devil's club buds enhance chocolate sauce

The magnificent Fat of the Land explains how, all the while helpfully explaining the hazards of harvesting buds from the infamously spiny Oplopanax horridus.
"If you go a-devil's-clubbing, wear appropriate clothes and a thick pair of gloves. I forgot mine—the gloves, that is—and suffered a few puncture wounds in my fingertips that drew blood. A worst case scenario is losing your footing and tumbling into a thicket of the stuff. The other rookie mistake is bending back a stalk to relieve it of its green shoot only to have the thorny branch snap back in your face when the bud comes free."
