Hop shoots are apparently the most expensive vegetable in the world :0 . Has anyone cooked with them?

I've got some Challenger hops in a large pot with 8 foot bamboo canes and twine for them to climb up once established. I'll post some photos once they're a bit more mature

Ours are 10ft after the recent sun/storm combo. No idea on variety but they’re lemony. Anyone near south brum is welcome to pick them in september.

I've got northern brewer from lidl this is there 3rd year and they are about an inch and a third unknown about a foot tall I hope they get a growth spurt.
My wife wanted me to get a hobby now I make beer. She says I'm always in my shed I KEEP TELLING HER IT WAS HER IDEA.

Planted these a couple of months ago. They’re a good 7 foot now. Hoping to get a few cones off them
Cheers and gone,

Here are mine. Only potted them in spring so I think next year they'll come back even stronger!

What did everyone get this year then? I managed to have about 1kg of hallertauer mittelfrueh dry weight ( glad I like it) and still have another similar amount to pick but I don't think I will, also brewed a centennial wet hop beer today with 1.5kg of wet hops and can probably pick another kg tomorrow to dry. Overall a bumper crop this year.
