So, you’ve watched Part 1 of my Urban Spring Foraging series and learned how to locate a number of tasty edible greens in the urban wild. Now, let foraging expert, Leda Meredith show you how to make an easy wild greens pesto recipe with the foraged goods she gathered in the park.

Just note, it’s not your typical basil pesto. Instead, it has a garlicky, bright, earthy, forest-like flavor that definitely says to your boring winter vegetables: spring is here.

So, get out there! Free food awaits… And if you don’t want to go at it alone and roll the dice on your newly acquired plant ID skills, you can click here to find out about upcoming Spring/Summer 2011 foraging tours/classes with Leda.

    Another great video! I want to get out there and forage, but don’t know how to identify most things other than onions or garlic and dandelion greens and wild berries. I also worry about getting to a place where the neighborhood dog walkers don’t go. I guess I’ll have to stray from the path.

    I wonder if there’s a book out there to help identify what should and shouldn’t be picked for consumption. If not, what a great opportunity for someone like Leda, eh?
