    Hello,

    I find this little guy in my haversack that I used in the woods yesterday. I think he will be great and crunchy if he gets barbecued and served with mustard honey dip. What do you think?

  4. In that case I think you better deep fry them instead of barbecueing them.

    Hello,

    hm, yea, makes sense. For a moment I thought about putting them on a skewer, separated with pieces of bacon. But deep frying is much easier.

    nice big snails are delicious cooked briefly in their shell even without any seasoning over an open fire

    Wild strawberries are good. They are small but very tasty.

    miner's lettuce, black berries, pine nuts, hazel nuts, salmon berries, thymbol berries, tuli roots, acorns, the last two have to be processed. acorns have to be ground fine enough to flood wash the tannen out of granuals, tuli roots i'm not sure, but like the sweet part in where the stages of grasses join, everything that isn't the edible part, needs to be removed from around it. avoid service berries unless you need a laxative.

    the base of the tea rose flower, or any rose, after the petals fall off and it is thoroughly dried, can be skinned and its dried cernal ground, this makes rose hips tea.

    margeratiffer margeratiffer, a very small fresh water molusk can be eaten. quail can be caught by chaising them into a net, then prepared and cooked like other foul.

    and of course, nice fishies.

    dearseses make good eating of course, but there's waaaay too much there for one person. you need either a whole village or some means of preservation for large game to be practical.

    bunbuns make good eating too, but jacks tend to have parasites that spoil the meat.

    those are just the things i know about.

    only ever eat what you absolutely know and are familiar with.

    and of course the details very from bio region to bio region.

    Hello,

    some time ago I tried to bake a cookie out of acorn coarse meal. It was an experience ;).

    Oh, try spruce shoots next spring. They are delicious.
