Edible Wild Plants of the Carolinas
A Forager’s Companion
Lytton John Musselman, Peter W. Schafran
Foraging edible plants was once limited to specialists, survivalists, and herbalists, but it's become increasingly mainstream. Influenced by the popularity of the locavore movement, many restaurants feature foraged plants on their menus, and a wide variety of local foraged plants are sold at farmers markets across the country.
With Edible Wild Plants of the Carolinas, Lytton John Musselman and Peter W. Schafran offer a full-color guide for the everyday forager, featuring:
- Profiles of more than 100 edible plants, organized broadly by food type, including seeds, fruits, grains, and shoots
- Details about taste and texture, harvesting tips, and preparation instructions
- Full-color photos that make it easy to identify edible plants
Edible Wild Plants of the Carolinas is designed to help anyone enjoy the many wild plants found in the biodiverse Carolinas.
