If you know how to eat a cattail correctly, you could have a great source of nutrients and much-needed energy if SHTF! They also can be used for cordage and other survival uses too.
Cattails pretty much grow everywhere, I live in the city and see them everyday on the side of the roads and around any water source! Cattails have so many other uses apart from for food but let’s stick to the subject and I will cover other uses in a later post.
Cattails hold a lot of minerals that we will need if SHTF, the top one being Manganese 0.2mg 11% RDV. I found a great article that shows you how to strip the plant down and get it ready for consumption.
The article also has a few recipes you can try out. I would suggest that you try them and not let your family know until after they have finished and wow them with your newfound FREE wild edible 🙂
