Did you know this?

The history of us humans reveals that we are foragers (the hunter-gatherer type). Therefore, eating the wild is part of human design. Less than a hundred years ago it was crucial for human survival to have the knowledge and the manual skills to store summer harvest to keep it edible throughout harsh Nordic winters. 

Substituting ‘conventional’ herbs or vegetables with their wild counterparts will turn your old favorites into something new, upgrading your sense of taste. Learning to use wild herbs in cooking will introduce completely new flavors and flavor combinations. You are in for endless surprises.

Foraging is very much a journey. It’s a life-changing one, with no return. The more time we spend in nature, admiring its beauty and collecting and experiencing wild herbs, the closer our connection and oneness with nature will become. This connection is at the core of it all.

“Many people remove dandelion leaf stems as they are fairly bitter in taste but, personally, I love them! I believe they are pure, strong medicine.”
