I wish I could easily add a lot to this, and I can add a couple off the top of my head: wintergreen and pine needle tea.

I have accumulated a number of wild edible and medicinal plant books but they are all stored at my BOL location in Maine and I do not have access until the temperatures warm up.

There is or was a real expert on wild edible plants in Maine who is a member here: straightrazor.

Can't wait for Fiddle heads and Brookies.

Here are a couple other wild edibles:

Wild Horseradish
Wild Grapes (not sure if they are native but there are several spots in my area with these)
Milk weed
Thistle (never tried)
Ramps (wild leak)

Plantain
golden rod
wood sorrel
sheep sorrel
wild strawberry
dandelion
trillium
clintonia
bunchberry berries
hobble bush berries
Indian cucumber


not necessarily edible but good medicinal Yarrow and the amazing Tinder Fungus one of the most useful things around

Burdock, root and leaves,
japanese knotweed
sumac (as long as the berries are red) it can be made into a juice
mullein ( used as a tea)
acorns
red cloves
yellow cloves ( very tasty)
white cloves ( these can be found almost everywhere )

just remember that most wild edible grow close to water sources

I have posted it before but seeing as how you are looking for information ill post it again. I have a bunch of survival docs on my website including what can and can not be eaten in the wild, and what plants to avoid. Here is a link and please download and share the docs they are there for everyone. The more we know the better! LINK
