Spring Foraging with Puck's Plenty
Event Date: Sunday May. 20th, 2018
Event Time: 10 am - 1 pm
Host: Puck's Plenty Foraging Tours
Ah, the Stinging Nettle. We've got lots of stories on this plant in our bag to say the least. Such as the time a few years back when one of our particpants, after harvesting and sampling Trout Lilies, figured as long as it was edible you could taste it, cooked or raw. So he grabbed a stem of nettle, put it in his mouth and swallowed. Not a pleasant sight as we watched while the tingling from mouth to throat to whatever ran its course. But the fact is that nettles are one of the heathiest plants you can consume . . . . as long as they're cooked first. Chocked full of iron these plants make wonderfully healty and delicous soups, pestos, tea and beer. That's right, Nettle Beer! Luckily for us they grow right alongside an abudnance of fiddleheads and burdock. So bring your bags, baskets and gloves and join us as we make our way into a field of Nature's Bounty.
There's a reason Travel and Leisure Magazine listed Puck's Plenty as one of the top foraging spots in the world. Find out why!
