Foraging 101: Jewelweed
detailed and humorous article states. You can also eat the young shoots, boiled after removing the leaves. Jewelweed is great for poison ivy (which I never get... darn it! I never get sick enough to use my herbs!) and it's got pretty orange flowers. This is an herb I only discovered a couple hears ago. Mine grows down the road by a creek bank, under a bridge. Careful- it's a fragile plant that withers pretty fast, and bring scissors or you'll end up pulling out the whole plant.
