Backyard Foraging: 65 Familiar Plants You Didn't Know You Could Eat
by Ellen Zachos Author
A guide to exploring your familiar surroundings with new eyes, as well as your taste buds and stomach. Tips about techniques, tools, and safety are followed by comprehensive guides to identifying, harvesting, and eating common garden plants in all four seasons. Dine on bamboo shoots (and prevent the adult bamboo from taking over your entire garden), explore the culinary possibilities of flowers, weeds, and mushrooms, and feast on prickly pear fruits and pads (the latter are better known as nopales), or ferment an abundance into cactus wine. Photographs show plants as they look when they should be harvested.
