Edible wild plants, mushrooms, fruits, and nuts grow along roadsides, amid country fields, and in urban parks. All manner of leafy greens, mushrooms, and herbs that command hefty prices at the market are bountiful outdoors and free for the taking. But to enjoy them, you must know when to harvest and how to recognize, prepare, and eat them.
The Complete Guide to Edible Wild Plants, Mushrooms, Fruits, and Nuts provides everything you need to know about the most commonly found wild foods—going beyond a field guide’s basic descriptions to provide folklore and mouth-watering recipes for each entry, such as wild asparagus pizza, fiddlehead soup, blackberry mousse, and elderberry pie.
This fully illustrated guide is the ideal companion for hikers, campers, and anyone who enjoys eating the good food of the earth. With it in hand, you will never take another hike without casting your eyes about with dinner in mind.
