Word Wednesday: "Esculent"

The word of the day is esculent, meaning "something that is edible."  It comes from the Latin esculentus, from esca, or "food."  Plural is esculents.  It sounds a bit like escarole and escargot, which are both esculents.  Happy Thanksgiving and I hope all of your esculents are delicious!
