Yes we make maple syrup in the way spring here in northern Michigan. This year we were clearing a slice of land south of our usual garden site and cut a couple of yellow birch down. I used some of the inner bark,raspberry leaves and horsetail to make a tasty tea. It's tricky to get the inner bark out but worth the effort.
Didn't realize some have trouble with day lilies. I got mine from a pioneer homestead which is abandoned. Around here folks back when my grandpa was growing up only had flowers they could eat in their yards. Anyway sounds like the toxin in families must build up in those who eat them. There are some mushrooms that do that but I avoid them. What people here call beefsteak are in that catagory.
I have sworn off daylilies though after a bad experience: https://permies.com/t/140497/flower-petals#1122682
