One thought on “Walk in the Woods: Foraging the Forest”
A depression era food source. During the late 1920’s and early 1930’s in Central Illinois, I remember my mother harvesting tender dandelion leaves and preparing them as a salad or a side dish. Also, my siblings and I frequently foraged nearby timber areas for seasonal berries.
