These 4 wild teas are just fantastic, they can give you much-needed nutrients and boost morale if you find yourself lost in the woods. Or if you want to show off when camping 🙂
If you’re not sure about all this plant eating and foraging, don’t let a few bad plants scare you away from gathering wild foods. Take a respectable field guide with you, and use it. My top recommendation is “Peterson’s Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants.” It’s usually around 10 bucks and well worth it!
All of the teas on the article are easy to make and all taste yummy, I can actually say I have tried all of these and more. When you start to feel the warmth of the tea on a cold night, you will sit there glowing knowing that mother nature has your back. You just have to learn the skills. 🙂
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.
