Sergei Boutenko, author of Wild Edibles: A Practical Guide to Foraging, with Easy Identification of 60 Edible Plants and 67 Recipes, enjoys foraging for free food (Amazon). He believes that wild edibles are extremely nutritious and should be collected and consumed regularly by everyone. To ensure that people collect edible plants in a safe and responsible manner, Boutenko produced this film.

Common Weeds And Wild Edibles Of The World is an instructional video on how to safely and sustainably harvest, clean, and prepare the most common wild edibles. In addition to in-depth instruction on how to forage for over a dozen edible plants (found in North America, as well as many other parts of the globe) this movie also contains tons of useful tips that will help you reduce your monthly food bill and allow you to enjoy new healthful culinary flavors.

Run time: 42 minutes

Hiya

This looks awesome, and very pertinent to me.  Wonderful freebie.

However (and please forgive my low intelligence), I can't figure out how to access it as a bonus freebie and I used up my spare money supporting the kickstarter.

Any suggestions?

It seems that you currently own this movie.  When you are logged in, you should see the movie embedded in the first post and be able to play it.

Outstanding! The salad at the end looks good. Yeast flakes would add a nice cheese like flavor to the salad.

Very nice video.  So many of these plants I've seen and sadly destroyed as unwanted weeds before now.  Appreciate knowing this info.

Thanks for this!  I have been on the lookout lately on walks, for sources of water, plus fruit and herbs/veg, in case the state of the world comes to that.

Not all of these are in Hawaii, but I know recently I spotted shepherd's purse and thought...what is that?  I know I've seen it in one of my herb books.  Is it edible?  Very unusual looking, so it's kind of easy to spot.

I'll have to go back and double check the identity.

Nature is so abundant.  I'm astounded at the diversity of weeds that come up at my place, which I never planted, and just "show up" from thin air!  

The trick is always identifying them, and learning to work with them somehow, rather than (as we've been brainwashed to believe) to kill everything; it's BAD.

I LOVE stuff that grows for free, needs little or no care, and especially if it will feed me or the chickens or pollinators.

You should be able to spot amaranth (or some cousin), purslane, mallow, and dandelion in your area, at the very least.  Go to some abandoned lot, or check near the edge of a stream or pond.

You'll also likely find plantain (not in the film).  Plantago lanceolata or P. major, or the Chinese species.  Those leaves are a little tough for eating, BUT very helpful medicine.  My neighbor asked me for some to make a tea for urinary tract infections, and I've used it on bee stings.  Spit poultice will take the pain away almost immediately.  

Wonderful, amazing Nature!

One of the things I have loved the most about practicing permaculture, is that it has brought back weeds. We have learned to identify them, and those we just let grow. We have a lot now of especially purslane, mallow, wild mustard and nettles. I look forward to spring when the garden is full of mallow and nettles, and I harvest a lot of them. They also always come at a time, when they don’t cause trouble. Like they arrive in spring right before planting. The last 3 years, I have harvested enough nettles for both tea, smoothies and wine. Mallow always turns up when cold and flue season hits SoCal. I think it’s natures gift to us, to get us through that season. My favorite way to eat mallow, is doing an infusion with a little lemon juice. It get a little slimy, but the lemon breaks that up, and it’s so good. For head colds.
Now we are in August and I have purslane growing between my rhubarb. I am happy, since they keep other weeds away, and they are so yummy. Purslane is my favorite wild edible.
Btw. I think you have just helped me identify what I have in my front yard. They look so like dandelion but has little thorns on the stem. I am going to check the stem and compare it with yours, but I think we have that prickly version of dandelions, since I have noticed the puff balls.

Sonja, if you're logged into your account, the video will be there and watchable, right above the Upgrade boxes that mention $$$. Even when we own something, those still show in case we want to buy it as a gift or buy additional material. Like, I have access to the excellent video, and am about to upgrade to get the ebook! But the video or download you own will still be there and available to you.
Sometimes it takes some looking to find it!

EatTheWeeds.com is a good ID source.
Dean Greene also hosts walkabouts which help. I live in Central FL, and we have many of the same plants. A great one to start with is spanish needles / bidens needles. Beautiful white petaled flowers.They grow almost everywhere nationwide. Super delicious raw or cooked and chopped into eggs, stews, or dried and ground for a healthy green powder. Also used medicinally... plant and roots. My favorite - eat a few new sprouts if you have a sore throat, gone super fast!. It is a daily part of out chickens diet as well! So many benefits!! 💚🌱 Life, Love & Peace 🌻

Thanks for the free watch. I have many of these in my garden; but I mixed up some names watching it.
I have a question for anyone. How do you eat weeds in winter? Freeze? Dry? Can? Make a meal + freeze it?  I will buy your stuff soon, but not now. I have to figure out how i will eat weeds outdoors with bring-along a mortar/pestle. I had most of my teeth removed; and I'm unsure my healing dentures (they are soft) will work well with chewing. I need a way to eat weeds without dentures, should I be camping "way out" and break or lose them. Any ideas besides mortar-pestle?
 
if you think brussel sprouts are yummy, you should try any other food. And this tiny ad:
