February 18, 2013 Show with John Kallas
Bill Taylor and Jaye Alison Moscariello interviewed John Kallas PhD, author of Edible Wild Plants: Wild Foods From Dirt to Plate. Not just another wild plant book with photos of the flowering stage, this thorough treatment shows plants from just-emerged through the stages when it is best to eat, often long before it flowers. In addition it shows look-alikes to help readers distinguish the plant from others. Following this are recipes for preparing each wild plant. There are sections on understanding wild foods, each plant in detail, and the potential of wild foods, with nutrition information.
