Is vinegar an adequate remedy for poisoning by ingestion of the alkolide lycorine? And anyone know what daffodil bulbs taste like (in a stew if you've been confused by the appearance)? I'm trying to avoid hands-on research for my novel if at all possible. I think a small dose would be fine, but after how this year started, I really don't want to take a chance.
I need a character to kill a dying character with a stew including daffodil bulbs, and I'd like to have an idea of the taste. They look like onions. A few small bulbs can be lethal. I just wonder what they taste like. Like onions? The character is weak so she probably wouldn't have the strength to complain, but I want it to be from her pov. I really don't want to try one, so if anyone knows anything, I'd appreciate your information.
ETA: Thank you everyone. I'm thinking I may go with something a bit more traditional. The character is dying at home under hospice care and won't have an autopsy so any poison will work. I wanted something unique, but I think she'd taste the difference. Even though she's resigned to death and knows the other character wants to kill her, I don't think she'd be able to choke down the stew. I'm off to Google something that may spare me a terrorist label should my Google records fall into the hands of Homeland Security. XD
