Useful Weeds!

March 28, 2008

Want to get the ultimate revenge on some weeds?  Try eating them!  Just make sure they are the right ones though and haven’t been grown near any sources of pollution eg near busy roads, next to farmer’s fields that are sprayed with pesticides, regular dog walking territories etc.

You can find out more by listening to my contribution plus lots more information about tackling weeds on Emma’s Alternative Kitchen Garden ‘Weeds’ podcast (episode 59).

You can find a recipe for Nettle Soup here.

Some recommended books for helping you to identify wild foods are: Wild Food by Roger Phillips or Food for Free by Richard Mabey.

If there are any particular ‘weeds’ you would like to know more about please leave a comment and I’ll cover it in a future blog post.
