For thousands of years people have been eating foods grown in the wild, such as wild greens, mushrooms, roots, fruits, berries, vegetables, and flowers. But how to identify what you can eat and what you can’t? I’m not very good at it. Can you tell the difference between a tasty paddy straw mushroom and a toxic death cap? And the berries? Can you distinguish the edible from the poisonous variety?
I don’t even know what kind of mushrooms I photographed last week. I bet you can’t eat them.
