I'm going to try something new here in my corner of the blog world and do a series.
Foraging 101 is going to be all about free food. This is something I've done in the past but find myself doing more now, especially since it's late summer/early fall. Foraging has many benefits- 1) you get free food, 2) you get exercise getting your free food, 3) your free food is probably healthier than store-bought, as it's not been sprayed with chemicals or cooked to death. I mean, it was the food of brave, mighty Indian warriors and their sturdy, hard-working squaws.
In the coming weeks I'll be highlighting some of the plants/fruits/nuts that I pick up while foraging, as well as how to eat them and some other tips and tricks I've learned.
