Overview

An enticing book that opens up a whole world of wild plants for brewing tasty teas and refreshing drinks, plus fruity preserves-and more.

In her trademark friendly and expert fashion, author and illustrator Hilary Stewart explains how to identify, harvest, dry and store the plant parts, then gives recipes for preparing sixty drinks and several jams. In addition, she adds practical and decorative ideas that use a number of these same plants.

Drink in the Wild is an attractive and handy guidebook. Full-page, finely worked line drawings of fifty wild plants, together with descriptions and habitats, ensure their identification. The plants are all native to the Pacific Northwest, and many of them grow right across Canada and the United States.

This book is the long-awaited reissue-now greatly enhanced by additional material and accompanying illustrations of Hilary Stewart's popular but long out of print Wild Teas, Coffees & Cordials: 60 Drinks of the Pacific Northwest.
