Recipe Index

Here in our recipe index, you’ll find my favorite recipes made from whole, homegrown, and wild edible plants.   Many of these recipes are made from wild “weeds” and plants that grow in our backyard gardens and in forested areas.

I believe that food IS medicine. Learn how to make delicious edible, medicinal, and healthy recipes with what grows naturally around us.
