Here in the city, I don't have the excitement of foraging for my dinner. I can find dandelions, but with the canine and skunk population I choose to pass on wild greens.
And most anything around here has probably been subject to weed-and-feed products.
It's not a question of not knowing about what's edible and what's not.
It's about what has been done to those plants.
My exotic foods come from the market.
And tonight I finally tried these!
Why did I wait so long?
(Actually, these were given to me...)
They're very delicious when cooked like this...
Sauteed with cracked pepper and salt, and served with oven-"fried" sweet potatoes.
They're only available for a short time in the spring. I'll be looking for more this week.
Try something new! (And don't wait too long.....like I did!)
