By Colin

You’re  in the woods with some friends and realise neither of you packed enough food, what’s your first instinct? I certainly wouldn’t panic and neither should you. You are probably armed with tools in your backpack. Combine that with the Earth vast variety of natural foods; you should have little problem in getting nourishment. What then are those food that aren’t only found in restaurants or grocery stores?

你和一些朋友在林里,发现都没有帶足的食物,你的第一直是什么? 我当然不会惊慌,你也不要惊慌。 你應該瞄準你背包里的工具。 把它与地球上的各种天然食物合起来; 你应该没有什么问题得到营养。 那些不仅仅是只能在餐杂货店里找到的食物?

This variety of foods include; wild berries, edible plants and even seeds! Sounds questionable? No need to worry as these wild edible plants, berries and seeds, are totally safe for consumption as long as you are certain of their identity when collecting.

种食物包括: 野生果,食用植物甚至种子! 听起来有问题吗? 无需担心,因为这些野生食用植物,果和种子,只要您在收集确定其身份,就完全可以食用。

If you are at any point unsure of the plant, you can perform the Universal Edibility Test. But! If you not one hundred percent sure of the plant that you are identifying, I would advise against consuming it.

如果您植物不确定,可以行通用可测试。 但! 如果您没有百分之百确定您所识别的植物,我会建不要食用它。

Let’s take a look at some of these edible wild plants:


1. Fireweed 火草,之所以叫作火草,因為它是一種先鋒物種,尤其是在森林大火或林木砍伐後,只要有空間和充足的光線,這種植物就會生長和開花。它的葉子可以做茶,花可以做果凍。

Fireweed, or scientifically referred to as Chamerion angustifolium, is an edible plant which is native throughout the Northern Hemisphere.It is commonly referred to as rosebay willow herb in Britain, and in some parts of Canada as great willo wherb.Fireweed can be easily identified by its smooth and erect reddish stem, and unique leaves which have a vein pattern that is circular and does not discontinue at the end of the leaf.
