Wild Food Walk - Yucca Flowers and Taste of the Local Mountains

I was supposed to do a workshop about harvesting wild currants but nature had other ideas and the season is already pretty much over for currants.

So.... let's just take a look at what's in season right now!

We'll go on a gentle walk and learn about local wild edible plants. We'll see elderflowers, cactus, wild mustards, etc...

The walk will probably be around 1 1/2 hr.

After the walk, we'll have a bit of fun with seasonal wild food. We'll prepare some yucca flowers (maybe cooked on stone with wild spices), taste some infusions made with wild fennel and local mountains ingredients (White fir, pine, elderflowers, etc...). We'll make some juice with cactus pears. 

So not only you'll get to see the plants but we'll get a taste of them as well.

Fun day :)

      I usually collect the seed pods in a plastic or paper bag. Once home, I beat it with a stick (plastic bag works better) and the seeds collect at the bottom of the bag. Collect them. There will be remnants of seed pods with the seeds, place everything in a bowl and gently blow on it. See:­
