Wild edibles

Standard

Twice a day I’m outside watering my little vegetable garden, coaxing and nurturing the wee seedlings along.

And I have to admit that while I’m watering these delightful foodlings I’m scheming all sorts of ways to cook them up as soon as they mature.

Here’s a great video from Perennial Plate about foraging wild edibles and making ravioli. While I might not feel comfortable gathering nettles from the local river, it certainly inspires me to think outside my comfort zone and look for fresh flavors and dishes.

NOTE: It says clearly on their website that before you begin foraging to educate yourself first in order to avoid poisonous plants.
