Wild Native Edible Florida Plants & Weeds
This board has information on foraging for wild, native plants and weeds that can be found in Florida and the South. These can also be planted and cultivated in the garden or yard for presumably easy care food plants - why fight nature when we can work with it?
Florida Amaranth! "While the grain is very nutritional and versatile I use amaranth mostly for a summer green because it is among the few plants that can take Florida’s high heat and humidity. It has no significant pests per se. Its leave are nutritionally on par with spinach, which is a relative."
Harvesting acorns for flour
How to collect Pine Nuts. See comment: "... take the freshly picked cones (They MUST be picked from the tree not from the ground!) and put them in a turkey roasting pan with a lid and put them in the oven at around 200-250 degrees. This stimulates the cones to open and they literally spit the seeds out of the cones and into the pan. You can even hear the seeds hitting the pan like popcorn. At that time, turn off the oven and let it cool down."
