Recently, I find myself fascinated with the art of foraging for food. If you’re not sure what I’m referring to, it’s harvesting food that’s growing in the wild.
Featuring Assyrian, Middle Eastern, and other inspirational recipes
Foraging for food is not only fun and rewarding, but it can also save you money by finding wild food that you can consume. Not only that but foraging can take your cooking game to a new level! Wild food has many advantages including tasting absolutely delicious! So get off the couch and get out there and explore what’s good to forage in your area!
Sometimes, when you are in a secluded location (like I currently am in Montana) you can be in the middle of cooking when you realize that you’re missing a key ingredient. It’s those times that I find myself using what’s on hand instead.
I know what you’re probably thinking… can my recipes get any more obscure? First loquats, and now Pickled Nasturtium Seeds! It might sound crazy, but believe me, they taste great! Pickled Nasturtium Seeds are often referred to as “The Poor Man’s Capers.”
Mulberries are probably my favorite berry, and not just because they remind me of my childhood. Tart when they’re not quite ready, and oh-so-sweet when ripe; I can definitely over-indulge! But besides plucking them off the tree and plopping them in your mouth, you’ll want to make sure you save some for this delicious Mulberry Pie Recipe.
If you love grape dolma (stuffed grape leaves), then listen up! Store-bought grape leaves are gross! They are way too tough, and usually larger than they should be.
What’s healthier than spinach and makes this dip extra special? PURSLANE! You might be asking yourself, “what the heck is purslane?” Well, I’m glad you asked! Purslane is an edible succulent that has a slightly sour taste. It can be eaten as is, steamed, or fried.
