Someone had a post about prickly pear being edible? I have a ton of those growing in my backyard in NY. Do you know what they do to prepare them? what parts are ok etc... I made jam out of the fruit. Used the regular jelly receipe, it was pretty good.

Hello,
Here's a few from 1st hand experience. Dandilion leaf, huge in minerals. Purslane, tastes like asparagus and green bean, when older the stalk turns purple and bitter (oxylic acid).
prickly pear, burn the whole cactus, thorn removal. The last two are a great source of water! Okay, the inner bark of some trees (peal the bark off and scrape the tree) contains a 5 carbon sugar. Course ground meal, soup filler. Yeah, I've done it. When you're hungry, you're hungry.
I love purslane and dandilion! Cactus when needed, inner tree bark if I'm starving (or there's berries to mix into a breakfast cereal)
Hope if helps!

Peace,
Subs

To my knowledge all opuntia are edible, but they may not taste too good. Usually the pulp from inside the pad is eaten, raw or cooked. The fruit is edible, too, and the seeds but they very hard and must be ground first.

Prickly Pear: Eat the pears by picking them ripe, purple firmly soft, peal and eat. Warning: Tart! The cacti : take a knife and rake the thornes off, cut free from plant, peal and can be cooked like bamboo shoots. Mexican eat them a lot in foods. Palm sized leaf is preferable.

South Georgia has a large variety to eat. I suggest looking in library and ask around. Palmetto hearts, dandelion a small start. Truffles from around pecan tree roots. Look for a Boy Scout feild book.

the best thing in a survival condition is to find a garden,because it is easier to collect food and generally in a garden everything is edible!!

Hey, Any info. on where to find someone who would do a walk about tour/hike to actually teach how to identifiy plants in texas that we can eat. Books are good, but I have found the info to be too general, or not account for local variations of plants.

Got the garden thing going, but what if you were not able to stay in one spot for long, or were on the move, then you would need knowledge of local edibles.

I ate some pickled Tiger Lilly buds one time. I can't imagine things getting bad enough to make me consider eat'em again.

Consider the new one by Elias and Dykeman, edible wild plants of north america.... pictures, better organized, more educational.

I just wanna say that a lot of books give this method but I would never use it..( and I harvest wild edibles all the time)... there are many plants that even a very minute amount can cause sever discomfort or even death.... see Water Hemlock or Deadly Nightshade along with many others....Never eat a wild edible unless you are positive of it's identification..
