Make sure to harvest from clean areas that have not been exposed to toxins... roadsides, fertilizers, weed killers, etc.

We used to live in town. For 17 years I never once used fertilizer or weed killer on our property. It was like a giant salad.

Re: It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants
my granny used to make poke salad. it is deadly raw,
but has to be cooked right.



live on the edge, like when picking wild mushrooms.
 Quoting: ouachita dweller


Now that just made me smile! Haven't had polk (how we spell it) salad in like forever. And yeah, it has to be cooked just right, which I never learned from my great granny how to do.

And just a lil' PSA here for folks....get yourselves a good pic id book of your local flora so you know what to pick and what not to pick.

Mushrooms especially - come in 3 categories 1) edible, 2) poisonous, and 3) the kind that make you feel like you dropped a bit of acid. KNOW your 'scrooms, people.

The Morrells are easy to identify ,got a really good book on mushys with color pics,as I to am leary of poisoning myself but mushrooms are a great wild edible, Morrells are one of my favorites as they are chewy in consistency. Saute in butter good stuff.great thread.5*.

Re: It’s spring time, eat some wild edible plants
Love your threads, OP. Was just wondering if you were going to post again soon, and here you are
hf

Now that we live in the boonies I'm studying wild edibles, there's so much nature has to offer. Even in towns and cities, you just have to know where to look.

I'm going to hunt morrel mushrooms, my first time ever... they are all over our property and I've been doing my homework.

If you're making dandelion wine, spring for some champagne yeast. I tried it with regular baking yeast because that's all I had, the wine was ok but could have been better with the right yeast.

5 stars and blessings to you

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!

Boiled Nettles do not taste like lobster! chuckles I think they're a bit spiky no matter how long you boil them but they don't taste bad. I'd rather eat poke.
