The first plant I will be looking for will be dandelions, commonly found in the US and easy to recognize. Greens are for salads and blossoms are good fried, like green tomatoes. My mom would eat them when I was growing up straight out of the front yard.

You can find some bushcraft and foraging and wild edibles at
www.RucksackNation.com

The philosophy of Rucksack Nation tends to focus heavily on foraging as a main production of food, even in winter (Yes, there are plants still available). The paleo diet consisted of about 60% plant matter and 40% animal matter. Plants don't run, they don't fight back, and you don't have to chase them.

Default Cat tails

I know a little about edible plants and there uses and always researching for more information. One of my favorite plants is the cat tail the entire plant is edible and also highly use able. This plant is in an abundance almost every where. When the top dried it makes a good stuffing or instillation you can also weave with it to make mats baskets and so forth. Also if you have found cat tails then you have found water! Thanks.

Yes it's a great plant my grandmother used it as a tea for medicinal purposes. My main concern is what plants are edible in the city? for a cityboy like me.

Is there a complete list somewhere online about edible plants that grow in Europe? I have been looking around on google but not really found one that is good and complete enough for my taste. Thanks in advance!

Hi I'm Vee and new to this site. I hope I'm putting this in the right place. lol If you're interested in edible wild plants, youtube has a great deal of videos on the subject, and several series devoted to it. You can download them to your pc and burn disks of them to keep the information at hand.

Department of the army: edible plant guide very useful reference book. Also includes info on universal edibility tests with several steps to take before attempting to eat anything questionable can save you some pain. Also Kudzu is edible, fast growing, and extremely hardy.

I have been harvesting some plants from our yard for a couple years now. Usually on a pick as I need it basis. I have found that a few of these plants can be dehydrated or frozen very nicely for use during the winter months.

LAMBS QUARTERS - After I sort through the leaves and make sure none have bug eggs, or bird stool on them, I wash them thoroughly. I have froze them two different ways. I have blanched and chopped them to be stored in freezer bags and used the same way you would spinach. I have also just placed the cleaned, dry, whole, leaves into an empty butter bowl as they are and lidded tight. They thaw out nicely and do not lose there looks or flavor at all. I have also been dehydrating them until they are crispy. These I crumble up into flakes that can be added in soups and stews and other dishes like you'd use dry Parsley flakes.

PURSLANE - Believe it or not, even with as much moisture that these leaves hold, they can be dehydrated. I then store them in pint size jars and sprinkle them into soups and stews, or even into salads. The leaves are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which is thought to be important in preventing heart attacks and strengthening the immune system. A tea can also be made from them which can help with stomach aches and headaches.

ROSE OF SHARON (in the Hibiscus family) Our whole back fence line is covered with beautiful white, pink, and purple Rose of Sharon. I remove the stamen from the middle of the blooms but leave the back green cap on. I also pick young tender leaves from the bushes. After washing all these thoroughly, I dehydrate the whole blossoms and the leaves together. After they are crispy, I crumble these all and it makes a beautifully colored tea. I store this in pint jars also. This tea is a diuretic. All diuretics increase the excretion of water from the body. Also an expectorant which helps bring up mucus and other material from the lungs. It is also beneficial to stomach health.

HOLLYHOCK (also in the Hibiscus family) The dehydrated flower petals make a lovely and flavorful tea.

I suggest that you don't eat anything from nature unless you KNOW your plant.
