Re: Any Foragers Out There?

I foraged six $20.00 bills I found in some bushes near Palafox Marina in Pensacola.

Sweetbay leaves also found in the wild, but not exactly a food. Would love to hear others' stories.
I've taken a nibble on some drifting sea weed (sea lettuce) on occassion when swimming. Though I think I think it might be better to cook it in some Miso broth just to be safe. I've also scrapped some mussels off the mooring chain at the end of the season. They are a little on the small side but, still very tasty when steamed. Also steamed up some glass shrimp I found in my anchor drogue when I picked it up. Again,small but still tasty when quickly steamed.

THX!

Seen them around like for ages but never knew they were edible!

Cheers,

Re: Any Foragers Out There?

Does dumpster diving count?

Re: Any Foragers Out There?

The best time to forage dumpsters is usually on Friday when the old produce is thrown out by the grocery stores, most of it is still good.

Re: Any Foragers Out There?

That's one of the things I do not like: they will throw food away rather than sell it at discount. If that's all their managers can invent then I say their education was a waste of time and money.

Re: Any Foragers Out There?

I believe it has something to do with litigation aversion.

That is usually only here in the USA.
MOst other places will use the stuff, and recycle just about everything with no forethought. We USA folks on the other hand...
MOst people around the world would love to get our garbage before it goes into the dumpster. I have definately seen this from living all over the world. Shoot, in Germany they got police types that go thru your garbage and if they find a recycleable item, you get a ticket, and it aint to a movie!

There's nothing stopping them from giving/donating it to local farmers to supplement there chicken/rabbit/goat/sheep etc feed.

Have them growing as decorative bushes right here in my yard.
Hud is accurate, but complimentary is his taste analysis, , too much work to eat, to tart to be enjoyable.
The leaves are used to create fantastic scale effects on floral pageant floats, but are hard as hell to rake in the yard
