Taking time to smell the wildflowers...and eat some too!Posted Wednesday, May 9, 2012, at 12:22 PM
To my surprise and delight, I found corn salad, dittany (a wild oregano that is fantastic in salads and sauces), lambs quarter, narrow leaf dock (which is quite delicious), may apple and, of course, the old Ozark standby's of poke and dandelions.
Who knew such a wonderful bounty was available right at our cabin door? Add that to our three garden beds, full of heirloom veggies, and we have a veritable feast available. Granted, you have to like feasting on salad, but hey - I'm Italian. Along with pasta and bread, salad is one of our sacred food groups. (I also include cannoli, but then again, I'm not a purist...well that and I just love cannoli, especially with powdered sugar).
I highly recommend attending one of the Folk Center's upcoming herb walks or any local herb walks/talks you hear about. It's pretty neat to find and try new things right outside your door, and I've found that adding a little bit of the "wild" to your meal can be quite the tasty treat.
