  1. Great article. I’d love to see more invasive plants foraged and have wondered how to create a buzz around helping our natives by eating their competition. Like the garlic mustard mentioned. I believe it came here from settler kitchen gardens so it’s odd that we’ve stopped eating it.

    • The last thing I read about garlic mustard is that is gives off hydrogen cyanide. Our bodies can handle a certain amount of cyanide, but I wouldn’t want to push it. Hydrogen cyanide is the reason I stopped putting clover leaves in my salads. Clover leaves start giving it off about 20 minutes after they’re picked.
