Wild Spring Delicacies: Ramps, Morels, Fiddleheads, Birch Sap
In the world of wild edibles, springtime offers a buffet of delicacies that can't be found at any other time of the year. Let's find morel mushrooms, ramps/leeks, fiddlehead ferns, and birch sap. The season for these wild edibles is short, and they can be tricky to find. In this episode we'll learn how to look for, identify, and prepare them from field to plate.

Forage for Wild Edible Plants, Barter Free Forest Food
This is the life!
Support Pure Living for Life on Patreon. Being self-reliant goes beyond trying to run a self-sufficient home and homestead. We want to be self-sufficient outside, too, so one of the things we’ve been focusing on is learning what edible plants are in our area. That way we might be able to capitalize on free natural food! More specifically, it’s Huckleberry Season, and we’re gathering as many berries as possible to stock the pantry! This short video is to share more information about how we are foraging in the forest and then turning our finds into delicious goods to barter or give as gifts! Here are some posts you may enjoy.
