Reviews for Food for Free
Weeds are not weeds, they are food!
What an amazing book.
I never realised how many weeds in the garden and the fields were edible.
One of my favourite plants, Comfrey, is edible. A recipie in the book is to deep fry it in batter. I am dying to try that once the comfrey in my garden is big again in the spring.
Did you know you can make a "coffee" from dandelion root? Well you do now. Can't wait to try that one either.
It's all the fruiting berries in the book I like plus all the edible mushrooms at the back.
Love this book. by Beardy Boy
