Imagine what you could do with eighteen delicious new greens in your dining arsenal including purslane, chickweed, curly dock, wild spinach, sorrel, and wild mustard. John Kallas makes it fun and easy to learn about foods you've unknowingly passed by all your life. Through gorgeous photographs, playful, but authoritative text, and ground-breaking design he gives you the knowledge and confidence to finally begin eating and enjoying edible wild plants. Edible Wild Plants divides plants into four flavor categories - foundation, tart, pungent, and bitter. Categorizing by flavor helps readers use these greens in pleasing and predictable ways. According to the author, combining elements from these different categories makes the best salads.

This has proven to be a great book. Yet another that I want in my home library as a resource!

Very inspirational & informative. I'm hoping that the author does some follow up volumes.

I'm very interested in how to use foraged plants, particularly from my own yard & where I go for walks. Something more than wild berries. This is certainly the book for that!! It also helps in giving me ideas of what to look for at the Farmers Markets w/the stalls for the venders who forage.

How amazing is it that a lot of the "weeds" growing around us are excellent, nutritious food sources. Corporate programming, anyone???>>>>Rant: How annoying that I've been programmed to rip out these "weeds" from my flower beds and perfect suburban lawn that requires gas mowers and blowers that pollute as much as, or more than, cars; that pollutes our water supply with chemicals; and wastes limited fresh water resources on keeping it green.
