A little birdie just told me that if they show up on their own in a garden without being introduced, it counts as foraged.

Hello, I made a dandelion salad.  I started by foraging a cup of wild dandelion leaves.  I also foraged some clover leaves/flowers and mock strawberry leaves to counteract the bitterness of the dandelion.  I added a few shreds of red malabar spinach and purslane from my garden, then dressed it with a chocolate vinagrette (chocolate almond milk, olive oil, seasoned rice vinegar, and a dash or seasoned salt).   If I were not meeting the specs of this BB, I would probably do half a cup of dandelion and half a cup of clover to even the bitterness out.









Staff note (Mike Haasl) :

I certify this BB complete, along with your new Air badge in foraging!

Yesterday, I found this in our back yard.

Hen in the Woods wild mushroom


It's Hen in the Woods, kin to Chicken in the Woods but not as colorful. I harvested some to saute for dinner. Happily, I had just looked over the requirements for the foraging badge, so I remembered to take pictures for this BB!

I picked about a half bowlful.


Slicing the washed mushrooms.


Sauteed in a little olive oil and Himilayan salt.


We ate it as a side dish. Very tasty.

You're much braver than I am.   I see mushrooms and evaluate it something like this: is it a mushroom? Yes. Run away!

Anyway, assuming I did ever forage this hen of the woods, does it release moisture the same way button mushrooms do?
 
If you settle for what they are giving you, you deserve what you get. Fight for this tiny ad!
