Harvesting Cattail pollen... "Take a plastic bag and a pair of scissors into the cattail stand. Carefully bend the flower into the bag, and cut it off. Collect as many pollen-loaded flower heads as you can. Take them home, and let them sit undisturbed for a day. Then carefully shake them out inside the bag. This method yields far more pollen than shaking in the field."

We love baby milkweed pods battered and fried! I dip them in a seasoned GF batter and then fry them in a little oil in a cast iron pan until golden and crispy on the outside. The inside sort of melts like a cheese popper inside. Only go for the little ones (under 2 inches) and leave lots to mature and go to seed.

Finding the elusive elderberry


Raw, galinsoga tastes like pea greens. Cooked, it is spinachy, chardy, collardy, a sop for sauce and very similar in texture to the two plants that follow (use interchangeably in cooking). Use the leaves, and discard any fibrous stems. Wilt galinsoga greens as a side for every summer thing, from fire-cooked steaks to garlicky grilled chicken. Their light sweetness invites a dressing of soy, lime juice and sesame oil. Heat them with a little butter and top with a soft-cooked egg for breakfast.
