This is from a few days ago up in the Loess Hills. I can not stress enough know what you are eating and how to prepare it.

Luckily, there are some pretty universal plants out there. You can always look and find cat tails, thistle, bull rush, all of that stuff is safe and no matter how different the woods youre in are, you should be able to find that stuff.

Another great vid. Nice job. What pot are you using to boil the plants?

First off thanks for all of the compliments. Second, it is a 12cm Zebra pot.

That's a cool little pot. Here's a link to a guy that built a stove for it and uses it as an oven.

You're making me hungry IA. Now I wanna go out and get some more cattails. I wasn't too sure about the wood nettles until now though. I have some growing right down the street, but didn't feel like rubbin em on my arm to see if they sting the crap outta me. :) Now I don't have to.

Our cattails are just starting to get the flowerstalks.
