Forage & Feast

Over the Memorial day weekend, Scott & I attended a great program, just outside of Asheville, called Forage & Feast.  It was put on by Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism, and occurred at SoulFlower Botanical Sanctuary.  For most of our time together, we walked through the gardens and the woods, learning about plant species, and which are safe to eat, and which are poisonous.  BTW, don't eat buttercups!  As we walked, we collected bags of herbs.  When we collected enough, the group went inside and made dinner, using what we had collected.  These wild things became a delicious salad, a bright pesto, a dip, and even a dessert.

Have you eaten anything wild lately?
