If you want to learn how to make some of your wild food, then you are in luck! It is certainly more economical than an organic food store, yet does wild food have any additional benefits? Food foraging has been done for thousands of years and is now an integral part of many cultures around the world. So, why not combine a hiking trip, a walk, or even an evening walk with wild food foraging expedition?
Wild food is just food that is left unharvested by the farmers’ hands. This is why it can still be fresh, flavorful, and nutritional. By using your skills for foraging, you can get fresh food that is usually only found in a few places on Earth.
There are also some wild foods that we can find right on our own. Some many birds and animals will take advantage of your wild food forage. Just be sure that you pick up enough food for yourself and everyone else on your trip. You don’t want to become a food hoarder. Instead, you should bring enough for everybody.
Wild foods that are easy to pick up include fruits, berries, nuts, and vegetables. Some people say that you can use any kind of food as long as it is green or brown. Many types of wild foods are edible after they are picked. For instance, many berries are delicious eaten when they are still on the tree and still have some black mold on them.
There are also many different types of insects and worms that are very tasty. By going on nature or wild food foraging trips, you will find something to eat in the wild that you never thought was edible. That can help you save some money too.
Wild forages are often edible but not fresh. This means you will want to preserve them and eat them as soon as possible. You can do this by drying them out, freeze-drying, dehydrating, or even juicing. After you have preserved them you can take them home and store them in airtight containers.
You don’t necessarily have to buy your wild food to forage in the wild. You can find them in nature for free. You can even find some in your back yard. If you have a tree or bushes in your yard that produce fruit or other types of berries, then you might want to go get some and try them out! Wild food foraging is fun and you might just find some great wild fruit that you never knew existed before! Just remember to prepare it and store it properly so it can last for a while!
Another type of wild forage is insects. Many insects eat in your backyard, too. Look for caterpillars, beetles, and other bugs. They are usually very small and delicious. Just be careful with them. Wild plants are another option for your wild food foraging trip. You can plant the wild plants from seeds and make your garden.
You can easily plant wild plants in pots, too. These can give you a beautiful and cozy little patch of heaven in your back yard. You can create a small ecosystem out of the wild plants that you can grow all year long.
If you are interested in wild food foraging, it’s a good idea to get some training from someone who has experience in this field. There are many books and websites out there that will help you learn more.
