Adventures in Edible Plant Foraging: Finding, Identifying, Harvesting, and Preparing Native and Invasive Wild Plants
Many exciting things happening this spring! Our book has been published, and is available on Amazon or at one of the many appearances, classes, or walks we have scheduled for the upcoming months. We live in southeastern Connecticut, but most of the plants in the book grow across the temperate United States, and we tried to focus on the 50 safest, best tasting (no boiling in 3 changes of water here!) wild plants. The book also includes 20 of our own original recipes, and lots of color photographs, along with a bit of background story about our family's adventures while foraging over the past 10 years.
One of the newest books to which that we contributed is Vin Sparano's newest edition of Complete Guide to Camping and Wilderness Survival, where we contributed the section on edible plants and fungi.
These two, newly published works join the other publications to which we have contributed either photos, text, or recipes. The March/April issue of Yankee Magazine features us foraging together as a family in it's First Light section. Robert has even had some of his photos of the glowing jack-o-lantern mushroom published in a science journal in his home country of Hungary.
