Edible Foods

Over Easter friends shared some of their edible food recipes. One was a nettle soup with potatoes and nettle tea. Nettles have other uses as well as you can read in this article on weeds. Another recipe I could try was honey from dandelion. Tasty! These recipes are from the book "Sauvages et comestibles - Herbes, fleurs et petites salades" (Wild and edible) by Marie-Claude Paume. "Sauvages et medicinales" (Wild and medicinal) is another book by the same author. I could not find an English translation of these French books, but there is a different book available at Amazon. "Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and Not So Wild) Places" by Steve Brill. Bon apetit!
