When you walk across a field, do you ever wonder if any of it is edible? You may recognize several ‘weeds’ in there such as dandelion and clover but the rest is just ‘wild plants’ or other weeds to you.
What most people don’t realize or ever stop to think about is how much of what they aggressively try to eradicate from their laws is actually FOOD!
The best part? Dandelions and clover are edibles found everywhere!
Many people today are interested in ways to save money and the food bill is usually up high on the list. With the rise of basic staples going up and no end in sight, there is a movement starting to focus in on wild edibles found in their area. What they end up learning is there are edibles found everywhere in plain sight, even in the cities!
It can be hard to learn about all the wild edibles in your specific location, just as it is difficult to find edibles that are found on every continent and in most climates.
Thankfully, there are some hardy plants out there that have managed to adapt their growing conditions to thrive just about everywhere.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
