Can you guess what this is?? It's what's for dinner at the Vannette house tonight! Despite it's bad wrap here in the South it's quite a nutritious plant! 🌱 If you guessed Kudzu, you are right! So last year I foraged this stuff from a friend's property all spring and summer as fodder for my rabbits...this summer we are adding it to our own table. Experimenting with a few different recipes to see how we like it best. Raw it tastes like edamame or snow peas. It can be cooked as you would spinach or prepared like collards. 🌱 Did you know that Kudzu was introduced to the US in 1878 from Japan and grown by farmers as fodder and the government actually paid to have it planted to aid in soil conservation? 🌱 I'm super excited to add this plentiful (especially in the south) food source to summer meals. Would you try Kudzu for yourself? If so let me know what recipes you come up with! Happy foraging! 🌱

Qué maravilla! En Islandia hay campos y campos de angélica salvaje, muchas en flor, como la que tengo en mi mano... sus usos son innumerables, tanto en cocina como en medicina, desde tiempos inmemoriales... un dato interesante: es de las pocas plantas que sobrevivió en Islandia a la Era glaciar!

Nordens bud på wasabi. Vidste du godt at den wasabi der kan købes eller serveres i Danmark ikke er wasabi? Det du får er ofte en paste lavet på peberrod, sennep og grøn farve. 🌱 🌱 Vi her på vildt bord har fundet løsningen. Du kan nemlig bruge planten strandkarse. Strandkarse smager som wasabi og er grøn. 🌱 🌱 Opskrift: Vi har blendet strandkarsen med en lille smule smagsneutral olie (maks 2 spsk) en smule vand (1-2 spsk) og en lille håndfuld solsikkekerner(du kan også bruge nødder uden så meget smag), som du tilsætter lidt af gangen imens du kører din wasabi jævn i en foodprocessor eller en minihakker. Vi har brugt et godt bundt strandkarse til denne portion. 🌱 Vi vil bruge vores wasabi til duuuh fisk hehe, i dressing, marinade, madder, tatar eller til retter der mangler lidt stærkt! Kend strandkarse på smagen og da den er meget stærk vil vi råde til at børn ikke laver mad med den ude en voksen (giver tårer i øjnene) . . . . . #newnordiccuisine #wildfoodlove #vildmad #wasabi #nordisk #nordiskmad #strandkarse #nordiskwasabi #grønmad #plantemad #madmedmedfølelse #foraging #strandplante #vildtbord #vildeplanter #sanke #naturensmad #madglad #aftensmad #frokost #dressing #wildfoods #foragingforfood

So I've not posted in a LONG time and that's because I've been busy settling into my new role as Quality auditor at a fantastic company called @higgidy. But in between my 4 days at work I get 4 days off to explore the local Sussex woods and beaches. And there's plenty to explore. Unfortunately that means my bbqing has been put on the back burner for a while. But I will be trying to get more post in from now on so stay tuned not only for cooking posts but also foraging the local resources around me. These are some pleated ink caps unfortunately they aren't edible but still a very cool find. #sussex #sussexpics #sussexpictures #sussexcoast #sussexdowns #sussexgardens #sussexfood #sussexcountryside #sussexlife #sussexuniversity #sussexbusiness #freefoodsussex #foragingpics #foragingforfood #sussexwildfoods #foragingmushrooms #sussexwoodlands #sussexphotography #sussextober #sussexcounty #countysideofsussex #foodies #foraging #sussexforaging #sussexcountyfair #sussex_ig #sussexfood #sussexproduce #sussexevents #foodiesofsussex

Left to right: common milkweed shoots, burdock flowering stalk, and cattail hearts. It's amazing how mild and delicious these wild vegetables are. Milkweed shoots are similar to asparagus but sweater like green beans. Burdock flowering stalk is sweet and starchy, and cattail hearts have a wonderful cucumber smell to them. Don't try these at home before educating yourself! Common milkweed can be mistaken for spreading dogbane and other plants that are slightly toxic and (most importantly) taste like shit 🥴 . . . . #foraging #foragingforfood #foragers #catskillsmountains #mountaintop #wildfoodforaging #fieldtotable

Hogweed, hogweed, hogweed (or cow parsnip). What an amazing plant, and what an amazing flavour profile it has... I’m in love; from shoot to seed this love affair is bound to last for ages. However, like fungi, you need to know what you’re picking cos this tasty treat has some downright poisonous cousins- check and check again . . #hogweed #hedgerow #herb #verges #lanes #oldways #freefood #foragedfood #foragingforfood #superfood #somerset #popup #rogerphillips #thankyouthankyou

Sand leek or rocambole is a type of wild onion that has edible bulbs at both ends. It used to be a culinary herb, a garlic substitute to be precise. Its vitamin, alliin, allicin and flavonoid content speaks about its medicinal qualities: it is successfully used in the treatment of abscesses, bronchitis, flu and skin disease. . Both bulbs (top and root), the leaves and the flowers are edible either raw or cooked. Try some on your toast, salat or pasta. Your tastebuds will be thankful. . . . #wildonion #wildonions #garlicsubstitute #wildfood #wildfoodlove #fromforesttotable #selfsufficent #harvest #foragingforfood #earthmedicine #makeyourownfood #sandleek #rocambole #naturesgift #herbs #herbalism #herbalife #plantbased #plantmedicine #wildwoman #apothecary #edibleweeds #healthiswealth #eattheweeds #flavonoids #natureheals #mindbodysoul #foodismedicine ❤️

Who runs the world "mycelium" who runs the world "mycelium" WOW. Being a total novice at this my mind is blown woth what's being described within this book. For many many years I had never given a wild mushroom a second look let alone imagine what's going on beneath our feet, then one wet and windy day while walking the hounds I stumble across a Parrot Waxcap all slimey and green looking like something out of Jurassic park or a foreign planet and I havent looked back since. Not that Ive made much progress in my identification skills but now that my studies are over I can finally start giving mycelium the attention it deserves. (Much to my girlfriends displeasure 😉). #mycelium #myceliumrunning #paulstamets #identification #mushrooms #allthemushroomhashtags #fungus #nature #hobby #hobbies #beginner #novice #mycology #fungus #nature #foraging #foragingforfood #wildfood #wildfooduk #wildfoods #naturalfoods

Adoro la Traversagna in estate: campi, fiori, aironi, germani, anatre... Sapevate che decine di anni fa la zona era tutta campagna, campi coltivati, soprattutto ad alberi da frutto? Tanti i "foresti" che allora, invece di venire qua in vacanza, in cambio di pasti, un alloggio e pochi spicci venivano a lavorare in Traversagna e Pollino come raccoglitori di frutta. E sapete quale era l'albero da frutto più comune in zona? Il #gelso ! Chi l'avrebbe mai detto? Oggi qui sono quasi spariti e le more di gelso sono una rarità ai mercati locali. In foto difatti sono a raccogliere #moredigelso da un' amica a Pian di Mommio. E tu, hai mai assaggiato le more ho gelso? #traversagna #pietrasanta #inversilia #igerspietrasanta #alberodafrutto #fruittree #piandimommio #fruitpicker #mulberry #mulberrytree #foraging #foragingforfood #foragingisfun #treeclimbing

Sambucus Nigra ‘black lace’. It’s only fucking elderberry!! I’ve seen this glorious little number pop up over the past months, I’ve seen it dorment in winter and it always perplexed me, how odd for it have black leaves, how does it even have chlorophyll!? Never the less it went mostly unnoticed until bam it flowered with the most wonderfully soft pink/white flowers, very similar to elder and my quest began, it was a short lived one as it’s quite a unique plant and a google black leaves with pink flowers gave me results straight away (and yes it’s an edible) Anyway I am in awe, the contrast and beauty is simply stunning, nature is quite literally the most magnificent artist, scientist and inspirational existence there is. #sambucusnigra #amazingnature #amazingplants #flowerpower #wildedibles #blackelder #naturephotography #foragedfoods #foragingforfood #roadsideflowers #natureisart #natureisawesome #beautifullywild

Wood ear fungus or Jews ear fungus (Auricularia auricula-judae) not anti-semitic but originally called Judas ear as it grows on the wood of Elder trees the tree that Judas Iscariot hanged himself on after he betrayed Jesus that and it looks like an ear. This edible is chewy and tasty and is still used medicinally in China as a blood tonic thinning blood and preventing blood clots. #wildedibles #jewsearfungus #bushcraft #foraging #foragingforfood #foraginguk #fungus #ediblemushroom #survival #survivalist #elder #woodearmushrooms #coastalsurvival #coastalsurvivalcourse #coastalforaging #judasiscariot #biblestories

It’s finally that time of the year when the elderflowers are in bloom and I get to restock my fridge with elderflower cordial 💚 Elderflower trees, or Sambucus nigra, grow fast. They cut down my secret foraging place last spring, but small bushy trees have already grown back and they are in full bloom. Elderflower is not only delicious—it is also traditionally used to reduce fevers, and to fight off colds, flu and sinus infections. If you want to make your own cordial, remember that the leaves and twigs are toxic so only pick the actual flowers. Remove as much of the green stalks as possible. The flowers need to be cooked before consumed or they will cause nausea. But once you prepare it correctly, nothing beats a glass of cold elderflower cordial on a hot summer’s day. #foragingforfood #foragingisfun #elderflower #cordial

The delectable... Physalis Heterophyla- Ground Cherry 🍒 Hey friends! One of my favorite plants in the Solanaceous family is Ground Cherry! Much like its tomatillo family members, this fruit begins as a small yellow flower and turns into a husked green fruit. The plant has a soft hairiness, covering both stem and leaf. As the plant dries out and the husk turned brown, the fruit will yellow and have a fruit punch sweetness to it. Once you find them, you will be obsessed... probably one of our most unique sweet wild edibles. Be sure to only engaged with RIPE berries once properly identified to multiple sources. You are accountable for your own actions, so this video should act as inspiration, not identification ;) Stay well my friends and remember, Rewildyoursoul #wildfood #wildedibles #groundcherry #wildedibleplants #foraging #foragingforfood #herbalism #bushcraft #shamanism #entheogen #engagednotcaged #eattheweeds #weeds #hurdygurdy #nativeamericanflute #massachusetts #originalmusic #naf #ravpan #ravlabs #ravvast #ravdrum #ravvastdrum #ravvastlovers

EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS: I surprise myself each time I play around with wild food. I spent no more than fifteen minutes from harvest to a delcious meal. I like to keep things simple and let the ingredients make the dish rather than overseasoning with unneeded ingredients. THE PROCESS: I melted butter into a pan and sprinkled a little pepper and powdered wild garlic before dropping in the common hogweed flower buds, lemon balm, lambs quarters, common sorrel and clover to fry and simmer gently with the lid on to trap the moisture. I added the chopped onion leaves towards the end and took the lid off for the last couple of minutes on the hob. With the heat on low I melted in chunks of mild goat cheese and served with a sprinkle of kelp seaweed powder. #wildfood #greenfood #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #foragingforfood #forager #huntergatherer #eatwild #natureheals #guthealth #wildedibles #microbiome #healthyeating #plantfood #eatweeds #weedsarefood #weeds #weedsarenottheenemy #organic #clover #commonsorrel #commonhogweed #lemonbalm #lambsquarters #simplefood #5minutemeal #lowcarb #paleo #wildnutrition

PICKING MY LUNCH: Within a five minute radius of my home. Isn't it amazing to find that nature takes care of our dietary needs should we know where to look? I gathered a handful of common hogweed flower buds, lemon balm, lambs quarters, common sorrel, clover and a few leaves from my mother's onion patch. See my next post for what I created with these plants. #wildfood #greenfood #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #foragingforfood #forager #huntergatherer #eatwild #natureheals #guthealth #wildedibles #microbiome #healthyeating #plantfood #eatweeds #weedsarefood #weeds #weedsarenottheenemy #organic #clover #commonsorrel #commonhogweed #lemonbalm #lambsquarters

Tante le emozioni che mi hanno sopraffatta nel ritornare nel mio bosco dopo tanti mesi. A cominciare dalla nostalgia per il babbo. Nel risentire il profumo di terriccio e nel rivedere i colori dei fiori di montagna. Nell'incontrare un serpentone per la prima volta. Ma soprattutto nel riscontrare una crescita fuori dal comune di mirtilli neri selvatici. Era da bambina che non ne vedevo così tanti. Poi li portò via l'alluvione. E fino ad un anno fa ne maturavano solo 1 o 2. Rimangiarne a manciate, sentire ancora quel sapore dolce caratteristico e sporcarsi mani e labbra di viola mi ha fatto emozionare e tornare bambina. E commuovere perché non avrei potuto raccontarlo al babbo... #mirtilli #mirtillineri #mirtillidibosco #mirtilliselvatici #mirtillineridibosco #mirtillineriselvatici #sottobosco #fruttidibosco #berries #bilberry #blueberry #wildblueberry #blackblueberry #ilmiobosco #mywood #alpiapuane #apuanalps #altaversilia #inversilia #igersversilia #stazzema #igerstazzema #foragingforfood #foraging #foragingisfun

Take me to the forest any day 🌳. . Foraging for food (and growing your own) are probably the least impactful way to get food. Obviously it’s practically impossible to survive on this alone, but if you can forage some free foods then why not. 🌿. . These here are chestnuts 🌰 we collected a few bags of them last October and stored them in the fridge and freezer. A quick search online will tell you what fruits/herbs/nuts you can look out for through the year. . You can also purchase pocket size books to take with you on adventures to see what edible plants you can find. . We currently don’t have a garden or much storage, but when we move under one roof together 🏠 we plan on doing a bit more foraging and growing herbs indoors 🌿. . Do be careful and if you are not 100% certain that what you’ve collected is edible then don’t risk it, and if you want to learn more then look out for local foraging courses and lessons in your local area 🌟

Like mushrooms, you can also take spore prints from ferns, which I find pretty cool! Here on the underside of this frond (leafy branch) you can see the 'pinnae', which contain the spores for reproduction. Ferns use both sexual and asexual reproduction. . Here's some interesting info on one of the asexual methods that ferns use to reproduce: "Ferns can produce baby ferns at proliferous frond tips. As the baby fern grows, its weight causes the frond to droop toward the ground. Once the baby fern roots itself, it can survive separate from the parent plant. The proliferous baby plant is genetically identical to its parent. Ferns use this as a method of quick reproduction." . Next time I'm out I might bring home some fronds and make a spore print 😃 . #naturegram #naturegrammer #foresttherapy #forestdweller #forestvibes #sunlight 🌞 #sunshinevibes #outdoorsman #outdoorfun #outdoornation #greenwitch #naturespirit #theearthoutdoors #wildernessadventure #wildernessvibes #wildcraft #wildcraftwildling #foragingforfood #wildforaging #foraginglife #naturenerd #getoutsidemore #lovenature 💚 #lovenatures #lovetheforest #woodspirit #inthewoods

These wonderful wild dewberry leaves were foraged by the kids and myself. We got plenty to dry out and make wonderful sweet tea in the upcoming months. The secret to picking dewberry leaves is to get them in the morning, before the sun really gets to them, don’t pick the ones that are really mature as they won’t be as sweet for the tea. Dry them out for a month or longer and it will make a tea sweet enough you don’t need sugar. It is amazing what Mother Nature gives us in our own backyard! #foragingforfood #forage #forager #dewberries #nature #mothernature
