If you like rhubard you'll love Japanese Knotweed. The taste is somewhat milder and the shoots are so much smaller but all in all simply eating it is a marvelous way to control this invasive species. The shoots appear in early Spring and as long as they are tender they are fit for harvesting. As one source put it "They are tart, crunchy, and juicy; can be eaten raw or cooked; and can lean sweet or savory, depending on how they are prepared. They are more earthy and to me
they taste like rain
" . . . Wow!

The Delectable Day Lily. One of Mother Nature's best kept secrets. Perhaps you would be surprised to know that every part of this very common plant is edible and . . . nutritious. Early Spring features the buds which have a wonderful nutty taste. They can be eaten raw, sauteed or steamed and are packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Protein.

We'll be searching for these along with Wild Leek Leaves, Trout Lilies, Japanese Knotweed and more along beautiful forest trails only 15 minutes from town.

One of the first wild mushrooms to appear in the Spring is the Pheasant Back, also known as Dryad Saddle. These mushrooms are quite unique as they are one of the few wild fungi that can be eaten raw. Their taste is reminiscent of sweet cucumber which makes them a lovely addition to salads. They also deliver a second flavour that is quite peppery. As the mushroom toughens it can actually be dried and ground into an amazing seasoning for soups and stews. Our foraging trek will also include Wild Leeks, Day Lilies, Trout Lilies and Japanese Knotweed.
