Out and about in the field? Why not bring home some exotic goodies – Canada’s countryside is chock-full of wild edibles, with more than 350 different species of plants and root crop to choose from. However, if this is your first time foraging, it is wise to refrain from touching or picking anything you are not familiar with. You would want to avoid unwanted contact with something poisonous that could trigger an allergic reaction and earn you a nasty trip to the hospital, or worse, your death bed. Even if something does look familiar to you, it is always best to seek consultation – from an expert you know or a trusted online resource – before taking home (let alone eating) any wild edible.
For a first-time forager, it is always best to brush up on your root crops and greens first before anything else, in order to properly identify the edibles from the poisonous ones. Getting your hands dirty can come later. A good old book such as Russ Cohen’s Wild Plants I Have Known … and Eaten is a good place to start.
Consulting an expert is another way to make sure you know what you are doing (or eating). Even if it is your second or third time foraging, checking and double-checking with an expert or a trusted source will always yield the best and least hassling results for you.
Let’s now get into the “meat” of the good stuff. Here are 15 wild plants you can pick and prepare at home with your favorite meals:
