It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants

It’s nice that spring is here. Wild edible plants are popping up everywhere.
It’s like walking around in a giant salad.

Just have to wash off the raccoon pee.

Re: It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants
Hey, Wild Edibles! I love your threads in general, but this one has the potential to be especially awesome. Five stars plus pin request :)

Have you ever tried nettles? If not, I probably know what you're thinking: "You mean those stinging nettles which make your skin burn??"

And actually, yes, that's exactly what I'm talking about. In fact you do have to take care to wear gloves/long shirts when collecting/preparing nettles for consumption, but if you boil them in boiling water it chemically changes the stinging stuff so they can't hurt you, and the aroma and taste of boiled nettles is remarkably like buttered lobster! I kid you not! And I believe they are relatively nutritious, too. (Vitamin C, antioxidants, phytochemicals.)

Boiled nettles look like cooked spinach and tastes like lobster!!

(Warning: do NOT eat raw nettles; I'm not sure how bad it would be for you, but probably pretty damn bad. DO NOT eat un-boiled nettles, I'm serious GLP.)

My only other contribution is dandelion greens, which is an Italian specialty. Not the head of the weed, which is bitter, but the leaves themselves. They make for a pleasant addition to a summer salad. Again, take note, make sure there haven't been any pesticides/weed-killing chemicals applied to any dandelions you are thinking of using, obviously!

Thanks again for this thread. I can't wait to see what kinds of recipes/videos you and other people will contribute!

There are huge patches of stinging nettle around here and they make the best tea!

Billions of them, but I've got to be careful not to get in trouble harvesting them.

It's a springtime goal of mine to learn...

Here's a short video (2 mins), and he pan-frys them instead of boiling, but I think they key is just to cook them to at least 212* (boiling) or higher. After that, I swear to goodness, they taste like lobster!

Re: It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants
yep ... I see the red heads of my rhubarb peaking up ... garlic will up up along with the onions soon too ... and in another few weeks, I'll be eating fresh asparagus and strawberries

perhaps these aren't "wild" but I don't plant them or the thistle, and cactus that are eatable too ... along with the mustard and dandelions that make the best wine ever.

Re: It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants
Dried stinging nettles can be used as tea, in soups, or even as an herbal addition to cheese (think a firm cheese, i'm not sure if it would work in the soft goat cheese). They are high in iron. In cheese, a little dried nettle gives you a buzz in your mouth similar to that of poprocks (or buzz buttons, but not many know those).
Watch for lamb's quarters and garlic mustard in the north. I'm not familiar with what grows in the south. Both are everywhere, invasive, and tasty raw in salad (so are young dandelion leaves and the yellow petals). Lambs quarters cooked is much like baby spinach. Great in omelettes! Violets are pretty in salads, and you can make them into jelly.

Re: It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants
heh. for some reason a lot of my posts have been not showing up on various threads.
I tried to reply about the sting. Most of the sting comes from little hairs on the underside of the leaves so best to only touch the stems and far down from the leaves.
There is another plant called jewel weed or touchmenot that often grows nearby and you can crush the leaves of that plant and rub on a sting and it will stop it immediately.

Know what's edible in your area and it takes away a lot of anxiety about going without food.

I would at least survive in most area's during the warm months, storing away for the winter, as animals and humans have had to do for thousands of years.
