Foraging

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!

 

Some of the foraging recipes on my blog include Foraging for Food, Pickled Nasturtium Seeds, Spruce Tips Pesto, and Purslane Dip.

It seems like recently I’ve been baking a lot of cheesecakes. I mean, can you really blame me? They’re certainly everyone’s favorite. But then there are no-bake cheesecakes; usually, I’m not a big fan. I prefer the more dense texture of baked cheesecakes. But then I tried this Berry Cheesecake!

Say what? You’ve never heard of “Mountain Berry Jam” before? Well, I can’t say I’m surprised. Especially since I made up the name. What else could I call this dark purple jam, made with Huckleberries, Saskatoon Berries, and Oregon Grapes?

Recently, I was lucky enough to go huckleberry picking. This Huckleberry Pie recipe was the first recipe I created with the huckleberries we picked. This gorgeous pie is not overly sweet, and bursting with huckleberry flavor!

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.

Spruce Tips Pesto

Spruce Tips Pesto

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.
