This Week’s Woodland Grocery Specials

Grape Leaves and Tendrils, Service Berries, Puffballs, Salsify Buds, Elder Flower, Milkweed Flower

Grape Leaves can be stuffed or used in pickling. Grape tendrils are good on salads, or just to much on. The Service Berries are ripening, but you may have trouble beating the wildlife to them. If you can only get a few, try making a vinaigrette with them. Puffball season is starting, so be on the lookout. Salsify buds can be used in soup, stir fry or salad, and also makes a pretty good quick pickle. Elder flower and milkweed flower are beautiful and fragrant. The combination is a favorite for making wild yeast cordial or wine.
