Mara has really been reading up on this (I got her a new identification manual for Christmas and she has read and absorbed it very well) and so she has done the most gathering so far this year. We think it would be fun if we could manage to eat something from our property (whether wild or planted) every day this summer. We have a good start already - now just to keep it up!
Here is some of what we have been gathering and eating....
Yesterday we used fiddleheads in a Chinese pork dumpling. We also put dandelion flowers in that dumpling along with chives from our garden. It was quite yummy.
We have been drinking a variety of wild teas and Mara did also collect little cattail stems one day for us to eat.
We feel like we have gotten a good start on wild food eating and we are looking forward for the rest of the summer!
Do you collect or eat wild foods? I would love to hear your stories!
