We all know our vegetables and fruits are safe to eat, but what about other wild edibles? Wild edibles can be a great source of nutrients for us and save us a lot of money at the grocery store.
Here are a few common North American goodies that are safe to eat if you find yourself stuck in the wild or just want to live a more self sufficient lifestyle.
I found a really good article over at my family survival plan and they tell you what wild edibles are safe to eat in the wild and show you pictures to help too. See the list and full article below:
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.
