There are sources besides Gerald and  we do in fact have this quotation 
that indicates that
they were cooked--
"also fried in the pan like the others, accompanied with vejuice, but to 
my taste it is more beautiful than good (tasty)."

It's from
"De l'insalata e piante che in qualunque modo vengono per cibo de 
l'homo" Manoscritti del 1569-1572 raccolti a cura di Guido Arbizzoni
