Not being much of a chef, and one who is never allowed near the oven, I 
should have distinguished between dry baking and evenly moist baking.  
We have our best luck cooking lycoris with evenly moist baking.  Our 
trials have also shown that dry soil reduces flowering, therefore we 
irrigate regularly in our sunny areas.  Since the foliage only comes up 
in fall and is mostly gone by summer, plantings in our full sun rock 
garden have produced the most vigorous and floriferous plants for us.
