Questionable Stropharia (yes, that’s really what they’re called). Not edible, but apparently those who have tried have said the taste is like old leaves. ________________________________________________________________ #saltspring #saltspringisland #saltspringislandbc #gulfislands #mushrooms #mushrooming #mushroomhunter #foragingforfood #wildfoods #pnwphotographer #pacificnorthwest #temperaterainforest #questionablestropharia #mycologysociety #mycology #amazingvancouverisland #hellobc

Pineappleweed aka Matricaria discoidea - Edible plant in the same plant family as daisies and chamomile (Asteraceae family) it can be found in poor compact soil commonly in entrances of fields, roadsides, muddy places and waste ground. Medicinally it can be used to treat gastrointestinal upsets, sores, fevers, it can also be made into a tea which can be drank or applied to wounds to heal them faster. To identify it crush the yellow flower and smell it and it should smell strongly of pineapples and have chamomile like leaves. Do research before you eat anything though #foraging #natural #nature #freefood #mushroomforaging #foragingforfood #mushroom #wildfood #natural #nature #grow #growing #water #sun #shade #plant #pineapple #pineapples #wildplant #wildfooduk #ukwildfood #freewildfood #vegetable #fruit #vegetable #fruits

“Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean. None of Nature's landscapes are ugly so long as they are wild.” -John Muir . It is a beautiful thing to have scenes like this a five minute walk from my front door. Life has been very busy lately and I have not made it out into the woods to chase game for a couple of weeks. Instead I have stuck closer to home and done a bit or urban foraging. The next couple weeks will be about christmas cookies made with wild ingredients plucked from right around the corner. . . . . . #hookriflespade #forager #foraging #forage #forageforfood #backyardforager #woodstotable #foresttotable #eatwild #nature #liveoutdoors #wildfood #feedyourself #outdoorsman #wildedibles #eatlocal #foragedfood #woodsman #builtforthewild #publiclands #fieldtotable #knowyourfood #publiclandowner #urbanforaging #urbanforager #christmascookies #naturephoto #sultry #foragingforfood

Cauliflower mushrooms are some of the funnest, tastiest wild mushrooms to prepare. They’re super versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. One of our favorite ways to eat this shroom is as gluten free noodles. @sencosal_thach usually likes to stir fry them, and his friend makes a killer lasagna. It’s also delicious when added to soups. In season now in select areas of Oregon and Northern California. #wildfoodlove #sparassis #soundon 🔊

Holding on to autumn. ...as long as I possibly can. "They lay him under a 'simmon tree | his epitaph is there to see | beneath this stone I'm forced to lie | the victim of the bluetail fly." I hope they lay me under a 'simmon tree. 😏 #namethatsong #persimmons #wildharvest #wildharvesting #wildfoods #foragingforfood #wildpersimmons #beautifulfoods #myfavoritewildfood #theylayhimunderthesimmontree #folkmusic #historicsong #19thcenturysongs #embracingtheseasons #wildfoods #wildharvest #iloveautumn #autumnismyfavorite #myfavoriteseason #jimgaffigan

Well I got me a bunch of coconuts 🌴 here’s hoping their all sprouted. I got greedy and foraged a bunch! 5 big bags worth. As I said in my story, I got mad respect ✊🏽 for hunter gatherers of old after today’s little expedition. 1 inch huge ants 🐜 biting me, sticker bushes galore while walking- getting on my feet and sticking to my sandals, cuts on my hands from trying to pull the roots out of some, muscle pain in my arms and neck and I ofcourse got a tad bit sweaty from all that hard manual labor. As soon as I got home I attempted to open one but not the easiest task. Will have to wait on husband for that. I’ve got enough of these to probably last me a good month. Thank you @floraforniagardens for the tip! It was fun while it lasted. Turns out this location is not public property but rather conservation and was told I can’t be foraging over there so the search is on for a future location. Still this is 🎶 Fruit for the win! Fruit for the win! Fruit for the winnnnn! 🎶 . . . #sprouted #sproutedcoconut #coconutheaven #coconut #coconutwater #coco #fruitsberriesandmelons #fruitsberriesmelons #fats #goodfat #blessings #coconutmeat #fruitarian #fruitporn #fruits #fruitoftheday #fruitbat #fruitariansofig #fruitlover #fruits #openme #rawfood #rawfooddiet #indianriver #floridagirl #floridaliving #foragingforfood #foraging

New growth of heartleaf stinging nettle (Urtica chamaedryoides) is always a welcome sight as winter arrives. Be careful with this plant, it’s well named for its hollow needle-like stinging hairs (trichomes) filled with acids and neurotransmitters which burn for days should they come in contact with skin (I speak from personal experience, unfortunately). While this plant is edible, not to mention nutrient-rich, it should be boiled before consuming. Image 1: Opposite arrangement and heart-shaped leaves. Image 2: Trichomes clearly visible on the surface of the leaves. Image 3: Trichomes also found along the square-shaped stem. Image 4: Florescence. #plantid #texasnativeplants #nativeplants #naturelovers #plantsofinstagram #plantidentification #texasplants #stingingnettle #foraging #foragingforfood

Sold one of these last night. I've been mushroom hunting just once so this shirt definitely doesn't apply to me. Tell me your favorite mushroom hunting story!

This is how Pistacia lentiscus, the shrub known as schinos in Greek, looks like in winter. Most people are familiar with the red berries ( swipe to see these too). The fruits are edible, and high in antioxidants and polyphenols. The oil can be also used for burn treatment. #pistacia #pistacialentiscus #lentisk #mastic #greekflora #greekherbs #mediterraneanherbs #mediterraneanfood #survivalskills #foragingforfood #foraging #primitiveskills #herbalist #plantidentification #herbalmedicine #spices #medicinalplants #plantsthatheal

Hops are the flowers of the hop plant Humulus lupulus. They are used primarily as a bittering, flavouring and stability agent in beer, to which they, beyond bitterness, impart floral, fruity or citrusy flavours and aroma; though they are also used for various purposes in other beverages and herbal medicine 🍀 These flowers ended up as dried examples for demonstrative purposes. Still beautiful though 🍃 . . . #hops #foraging #wildflowers #foragingforfood #forager #totallywild #totallywilduk #herbs #herbalist #natural #nature #foodie #chmiel #beer #forage

Al-Hamassies/ Sorrel /الحمصيص في فصل الشتاء يتميز المطبخ الفلسطيني  بطقوس استثنائيه تجعله ذي مذاق خاص وبأكلاته التي تعطي سعرات حرارية عالية تمد الجسم بالدفء .ولا زالت بعض الأكلات التراثية الشتوية محافظة على مكانتها،  وبعضها الآخر اندثرت الا من قليل مازال حاضرا على الموائد، خاصة مع حلول فصل الشتاء. الحمصيص من الطبخات التقليدية المشهورة والتي تقتصر على المطبخ الفلسطيني ختصة المطبخ الغزي واليافاوي ، وهي تطبخ عادة في الشتاء لأنه الفصل الذي تظهر فيه هذه  العشبة . وهي أكلة مناسبة جداً للنباتيين لاحتوائها على العدس الغني بالبروتين، ويحلو تناولها مع الشطه والبصل الأخضر والفجل كما هو الحال في معظم البيوت الفلسطينية الحمصيص نبتة معمرة نحيلة ومنخفضة. لها أوراق سهمية الشكل وسنابل طرفية تحمل أزهارا صغيرة خضراء تتحول إلى حمراء عندما تنضج بذورها. منه أنواع تنبت برية وبعضها يزرع... اهم ما يمتاز به هو حموضته. Palestinian cuisine is characterized by exceptional rites and  special  winter meals that happen to be high in calories in order to supply the body with warmth. Al-Hamassies is one of the most famous and traditional dishes in Palestinian cuisine especially Gazza and Yaffa . It is usually cooked in Winter because it is the season in which the herb appears and grows. They are very suitable for vegetarians because they contain protein-rich lentil. Usually served with bread, green onions radish and shattah. The plant is long and slender, leaves have the  shape of arrows and the flowers are small, green anr turn to red when they're mature. I've included some pictures from the web showing the shape of the plant in its environment. Leaves and stems are sour in taste.. @palestineonaplate The recipe can be found in the highlights!❤ #palestiniancuisine #palestinianfood #foraging #plantbaseddiet #foragingforfood #vegan #oliveoil #eatwithpita #healthyfood #vegetarian #palestinianfood #أكلات_فلسطينيه #authenticfood #palestiniantable #forkyeah #seasonalfood #localfood #foodgasm #sorrel #wholefoods #ediblewoldeplants #vegansofig #حمصيص #sorrel #foodforfoodies #foodporn #foodgasm #palestiniantable #المطبخ_الفلسطيني
