Risking a major jinx, I believe the Dreaded Winter is behind us. I am not kidding myself that I have spring to look forward to -- we will just get deluge after deluge, then it will be hot and humid. Apparently, that is now spring. But things are starting to pop up. GREEN things (gasp). And this is the time I pull out my old faithful, new-to-me copy of Stalking the Wild Asparagus. My original copy - purchased when I was a freshman in college (no, not the original edition, thank you, but darn close) - had been held together with tape, then packing tape, then duct tape. It finally bit the dust when a cat knocked it off the bookshelf and the pages went their own individual ways. I love this book. For me, it makes every spring and summer a great adventure - trying to identify wild food.
Thanks to Carolyn Renee at Krazo Acres, a blogger that I follow, I am now on the lookout for Henbit. I also have my secret morel patch that I am hoping is still there next month. And there are so many other wonderful groceries on Mother Nature's shelves that I haven't yet tried.
What is your favorite go-to book on foraging for wild foods? What treasures have you come across?
