Phallus impudicus -- "Stinkhorn" -- My FIL gave us one at his cabin yesterday and told us it was a morel and he harvests lots for a friend. It looked like a morel but was the wrong season and a few things were different (ours wasn't that stinky) so we looked it up and found this. Don't confuse with morels and don't give them to friends and family to cook. :)

"The staghorn sumac has been awesome! We’ve been filling a pitcher (or large jar) with water, putting the sumac blossoms in (just as is…we’ll give them a quick rinse and pop them in the water), cover, put the water in the fridge and you’ll have tart delicious water that is full of vitamin C and refreshment..." Love this foraging site for good edible info.

Eat Your Weeds: Foraging for and Eating Maple Seeds -- Pick when green. Smaller ones generally taste better. Different maple trees have different tastes (some like peas, some bitter, etc.). Can eat raw or bitter ones can be boiled, drained, boiled until no longer bitter. Can roast like pumpkin seeds or dry and even make into flour.

Anyone who suffers from seasonal allergies needs to stock up on stinging nettle while it’s in season now. Iron-rich and loaded with vitamin C, the leaves also contain histamine, the chemical your body produces during an allergic reaction. So eating it helps you build up your body’s immunity. But more than just a medicinal aid, stinging nettle will add a peppery zip to any dish with greens. Use it as you might use spinach, but always blanch the leaves first to get rid of the sting...

    Sampled purslane at a friend's house. The leaves are crunchy and slightly citrusy. Would be great in sandwiches.
