I don't know about you, but I don't always have an easy go of it when trying to get my family to eat more greens.
A trick that I have found is that greens in the form of a powder seem to be less visible and less strong in flavor and therefore I can get way with putting them into a wide variety of meals.
The problem; show me a greens powder with wild edibles, and the wide variety of greens that I can grow in my own yard. So here is my solution: Make your own greens powder! Not only does this make greens easier to get into my families bellies, it also is a super compact way to store greens through the winter. As you will see once the greens are dried and powdered they are a fraction of their original size!
I hope this helps some others to live more healthy!
I do this pretty often, especially with surplus kale and lambsquarter. Another thing I do rather than messing with lambsquarter leaves is wait until the lambsquarter goes to seed, cut the plants and stuff the tops in brown paper grocery bags, and shatter off the seeds when the plants dry out. Then powder the seed as shown here and use it the same.
Nice. I've hung nettles out on the washing line this spring, because i like to add nettle-powder to my morning porridge. And i planted melons and pumpkins on that spot when the nettles were gone. The grinding machine looks like a good one, what make is it? I dried my basil slow, last year, just keep it on the stems and put it in a carton, a bit separate so leaves can dry max, when the leaves are bone dry crush them in your hands, the taste was the best i have ever had in dried herbs.
