Warning you wont be buying store greens any more. I have always wanted to attend one of marks classes this is the next best thing.
Also introduce slowly and don't tell your family where your getting the amazing greens. Then when they are hooked its to late. The freshness and taste cant be beat.
Amaranth, Cat’s Ear, Cleaver, Dandolion, Henbit, Peppergrass, Sow Thistle, and Horsemint.
Pretty sure I have a half-dozen more, I just haven’t located them yet.
I love this book, especially the pictures of all stages of growth (and similar plants to watch out for)!
I also really appreciate the simple, but thorough overview of foraging, especially the stress on the ethics of foraging. Each plant description discusses harvesting specific to that plant, as well as the best ways to ensure that the plant and plant colony survives for the next season. This is a very important part of foraging that is lacking in other books.
There is a double page spread for each plant that is full of detailed pictures and descriptions on how to make sure you have the right plant. Mimics (look-alikes), both edible and poisonous, are discussed to further a successful identification.
The preparation and cooking of each edible part of the plants is discussed on the plants' double-page spread. There is a recipe section in the back that highlights the wild plants in delicious dishes.
In the end matter is a very good illustrated glossary covering the terminology of plant identification; a chart of harvesting times; related resources in the form of books, websites and apps; and complete index.
If I could only have one wild edibles foraging book, this would be it. I have the softcover edition and will be buying the Kindle edition soon. I will add a review of the Kindle book to this after I get it.
Note - Don't forget to go to the author's website listed inside the back cover in the author biography. It is incredible.
If you're looking for a well done and trusted source for delving into the world of foraging, this is a must have!
