Since going on a foraging expedition in Prospect Park with the Wildman himself, Steve Brill, I've been obsessed. I've been reading and researching about many wild medicinals, but there is nothing like experiencing the plant and it's surroundings in real life. I was amazed at the abundance, the nutrition and of course, the medicine.
Just a few things from the park... burdock root and stem, wild raspberry leaves, pineapple weed, chickweed, plantain, Shepard's purse, yellow wood sorrel, lamb's quarters and the amazing black locust blossom (tastes like a jasmine and vanilla flavored pea pod). Yum.
