Wild edibles are everywhere—in the woods, along sidewalks an even in the back yard. These truly natural foods are nutritious, taste much better than their plastic-wrapped domestic counterparts, and best of all, they are free!

Soon you will be making cakes and pies from hawthorns and ground cherries; soups made with fiddlehead ferns or wild leeks; and salads of milkweed, dandelion, day lilies or lamb's quarters.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This small book provides a brief survey of "wild edibles" from berries to mushrooms, along with 75 recipes, from Cloudberry Muffins to Pink Clover Vinaigrette to Stir-Fried Milkweed. A chef who lives in an old log house in rural Ontario, Mogelon observes in her bibliography that Euell Gibbons's Stalking the Wild Asparagus is "the book that basically started it all," and his and other books are more comprehensive than this one. Still, larger collections may want to consider Mogelon's as well. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
