Rather than cover hundreds of plants in abbreviated accounts like the typical field guide, the author has chosen a smaller selection of species to discuss in exhaustive detail, including only those plants he has eaten fifty times or more. This book contains as many as ten high-quality color photographs of each plant. These have been selected to facilitate identification and depict the plant parts at exactly the stage of growth in which they should be harvested. The accompanying text is accurate and thorough, giving readers of any experience level the confidence to harvest wild plants for food. Botanically, the text is accurate, yet it remains accessible to the layperson by using technical terms only when necessary. This book has many unique features that will appeal to naturalists, hikers, campers, survivalists, homesteaders, gardeners, chefs, Native Americans, and whole food enthusiasts. It contains a calendar of harvest times for wild produce, a step-by-step protocol for positive identification, an illustrated glossary tailored to the needs of foragers, a recommended reading list, plus special sections on conservation, safety, nutrition, harvest techniques, preparation methods, and storage. While this is not a regional guide, it will prove most useful to readers in the eastern US and Canada, the Rocky Mountains, and the Pacific Northwest.

In this field guide to foraging wild edible plants, Sergei Boutenko (son of raw-food guru Victoria Boutenko) explores the health benefits of wild-harvested food, explains how to safely identify trailside weeds, herbs, fruits, and greens that grow worldwide, and shares his delicious, nutrient-dense recipes. Sergei Boutenko has been gathering wild plants since he was 13, when, early on in a 6-month hike from Mexico to Canada, he and his raw-food family ran out of provisions and turned to foraging for survival in the wild. Back in civilization, Boutenko was dismayed by the inferior quality of store-bought food and industrial agriculture, and began to regularly collect wild plants near his home and on his travels. Now, in Wild Edibles, he shares knowledge gleaned from years of live-food wildcrafting and thriving in harmony with nature. This practical guide to plant foraging gives hikers, backpackers, raw foodists, gardeners, chefs, foodies, DIYers, survivalists, and off-the-grid enthusiasts the tools to identify, harvest, and prepare wild edible plants. The book outlines basic rules for safe wild-food foraging and discusses poisonous plants, plant identification protocol, gathering etiquette, and conservation. Boutenko explores in detail the many rewards of eating wild flora: environmental protection, sustainability, saving money, economic self-sufficiency, and healthy living. He draws on thoroughly researched nutrition science to make a compelling case for the health benefits of a diverse, local-food diet that includes wild greens. The majority of the 60 edible plants described in this field guide can be found worldwide, including common-growing trees. Over 300 color photos make plant identification easy and safe. A chapter containing 67 high-nutrient vegan recipes—including green smoothies, salads and salad dressings, spreads and crackers, main courses, juices, and sweets—provides inspiration to join Sergei on the trail to radiant health. “Wild Edibles: A Practical Guide to Foraging, with Easy Identification of 60 Edible Plants and 67 Recipes has taught me that my backyard is full of free food! Way to go, Sergei.” —John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market From the Trade Paperback edition.

Purchasing vegetables and leafy greens can become rather pricy. Moreover store-bought greens often contain unhealthy pesticides and chemicals that can be harmful to your health. Foraging for wild plants is a cost effective and healthy alternative. Harvested wild plants are cheaper, and much healthier with a significantly higher nutritional value than what you typically purchase in grocery stores contain. On top of that, harvesting your own plants will force you to get out, exercise, and explore the great outdoors, which is an excellent way to stay fit and spend time with your family. Written with novice foragers in mind, Adventures in Edible Plant Foraging, serves as a simplified guide to edible plants that can be found throughout North America, and includes a glossary of botanical terms. This all encompassing guide will teach you how to prepare for your first foray into foraging--what to bring and what to watch out for--and show you how to identify various edible wild plants native to your own backyard, the forest, fields and the sandy shores along lakes and beaches. With over 90 full color photographs and 20 recipes for soups, salads, muffins, desserts, and more, this book is a must have for anyone looking to save money and begin their first expedition into foraging.

Wildpflanzen kennenlernen und verwenden: In der Gourmetküche sind Wildpflanzen wieder "in". Doch wer sich bei "Mutter Natur" bedienen will, muss wissen, was er vor sich hat und wie er es verwenden kann. Dazu hilft dieses Buch. Fünfundfünfzig Pflanzen werden hier vorgestellt. Die genaue Beschreibung der Pflanze sowie die beigefügten Fotos helfen mit, diese zu identifizieren. Die Beschreibung des Standorts hilft einem bei der Suche nach bestimmten Wildkräutern. Erklärt wird ferner der Namensursprung, verwandte Arten, wie man die Pflanze anwendet und welche Inhaltsstoffe und Heilwirkungen sie hat. Besonders wichtig finde ich den Teil "Verwechslungsgefahren", wobei es tröstlich und ermutigend ist, dass eine Verwechslung mit nahen Verwandten meist keinen Schaden anrichtet. Abgerundet wird das Portrait mit interessanten Rezepten. Eine Einführung in die Bedeutung der Wildpflanzen, Vorsichtsmassnahmen, Tipps, wie man beim Sammeln vorgehen soll, sowie ein Verzeichnis der Pflanzen und der Rezepte runden dieses interessante Werk ab. Sowohl für botanisch wie auch für kulinarisch Interessierte eine Fundgrube! Ab 16 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Irene Beglinger-Flückiger.
