16 July -- Summer Wild Edible Plant Class
Earth Connection's Summer Wild Edible Plant class was a great success despite the oppressive heat wave we were having.
Appetites for the wild plant tasting feast at lunch were not hindered one bit. The blackberry cobbler was the favorite followed by the blackberry cobbler. Everyone taste tested day lilly buds sauteed in butter and dried flowers, milkweed pods sauteed in butter, lamb's quarters quiche, black cherry and blackberry spritzers, raw soloman's seal root, red clover flower flour tortillas, black cherry fruit leather, plantain seed couscous... Shall I go on?
Tim and Hue's instruction along with Jen and Jamey's cookin' help provided an educational smorgssborg in wild edibles for all the participants.
Does anyone remember what two types of "blanching" were discussed?
Tim and Hue want your comments and questions.
