This article is part one of a four article woodsman’s course that offers some great information and hi res pictures. I liked this article because it breaks down not only what to eat but where to find it. This is a crucial part of foraging. If you aren’t sure of the environment you could very easily eat some things that will make you sick or worse. There is an article in this woodsman’s course about that as well.
Some of the wild edibles that can be foraged are pretty run of the mill. Things like mulberries and blackberries are well known. I did like the idea of harvesting fresh mussels from water and cooking them. These would be a great protein source that you wouldn’t have to hunt or chase at all. As long as you cooked them properly you would be onto something great.
