"Urban Foraging" by Lisa M. Rose
Find, Gather, and Cook 50 Wild Plants. Our city is full of wild food, you just need to know where to find it, but please be kind when you see me out scraping plants from between the sidewalks!
But seriously, it would be amazing to take a stroll to discover the ingredients for a wild apple tarte tatin or turn the lilac bush found in a vacant lot into a delicious, delicately flavored jelly for your morning pastry. Discover a new way to feast on fresh food.
Urban Foraging is a stylish, scrumptious guide to wildcrafting in the city. You’ll learn how to find, identify, harvest, and cook with 50 common wild plants, such as chickweed, dandelion, echinacea, honeysuckle, red clover, and pine. Expert forager Lisa M. Rose shares all the basics necessary for a successful harvest: clear photos that aid identification, tips for ethical and safe gathering, details on culinary uses, and simple recipes will help you make truly fresh, nutritious meals.
