I believe the food lists in the encyclopedia coincide with the online typebase

errata from the books are also found online, just use your search feature

maybe we just like "real" pages to turn, but it always seems faster to open the book and find the whole protocal or supplament base, and a better chance of seeing somthing else you might have missed before while thumbing through.

It is also all very relative, there are plants you find in supermarkets in some countries that  grow in the wild and in some cases may be even be considered weeds in others.  Some had already find their way into the BT typebase and our lists: Kudzu, dandelion, taro, tahitian spinach, ....  So, even in survavilist situations, some of us could still be true to type.  

We are also always encouraged to submit names of plants and weeds and herbs that are consumed by anyone in our local area.  There is a sticky thread you will find in these forums 'Food choices for all' where you have the opportunity to submit your feedback relating to any food item you know of that is not on the list.  It can then be put into the summary table 'Summary table for Food choices for all' (I think that is the correct name of the thread) to be considered for analysis and typing in due time.

yeah, I ve become an expert in kudzu spotting since the release of GTD....
soon I ll be ready to raid my mom s garden for the elephant ears!!!


also the turnip greens and sweet potato leaves and beet greens.....all are thrown away in the large traditional market places down here......and those don t even arrive into the more sophisticated supermarkets......greens are all chopped off before

I d have to roam around the country farms and orchards and pick those up directly from the farmers.....

we all need to go back to Voltaire's own view on gardening
an important pastime of his own, it being an extraordinarily effective way to keep busy.

many of you are blessed having your own produce

bd, it is a tropical vegetable from the Taro family.  You will find further details in my last post in the 'Research on Food choices for All' thread.

May be you can.  I find this link that identifies it as predominantly suitable for an alpine, continental, mediterranean plant?  Some suggestions to grow it in containers.  No photos, but it is indicating the right scientific name.  Not sure what your climate is like there ...

right now it is warm and humid with cooler nights latter it will juse be hot and humid and then we will go back to winter and freeze over for a couple of weeks with very little snow but probly a good deal of ice. summer=good for plants excepte for that couple of months of drought, winter=fairly mild exsept for those three or four weeks of freezzing cold and ice storms.
welcome to arkansas, god made it to train the faithfull. as my dad likes to misquote from the movie dune.

It looks like it, apparently there are many different species of Taro, this is one of them, the one with the least toxicity!  I still will only harvest the leaves from the young plant, or the new shoots on the older plant.

There is an invasive weed called Russian Garlic Mustard which I've been pulling up (carefully, cause the root snaps off easily ) for years that I just got around to googling and found out it is edible. I figure it's neutral for me but. I ate some raw after the day I had it sautee'd with apparently no problem and while I'm not sure, the day I ate it raw I felt blockage on my left side at night and into the next day. There is old appendix lore about this vestigial organ being needed for vegetation digestion in forebears. Left side...Hmmmm Don't know perhaps I activated it or something.

Quoted from Lola

or you can tag and pull at her young elephant ears, give them a good wash, cook and enjoy them!!  

Throughly research wild plants before consuming!!  The story of this young man that decided to live in the Alaskan or Canadian wildeners (my memory fails me here), surviving on just what he could collect, comes to mind.  For days he was eating these wild weeds believing it to be something else, when in reality he was slowly poisoning himself with a very look-alike plant!!  By the time he realised it was too late, the damage was irreversible and fatal.  They find him dimised one or two days after the last entry in his dairy!!     Nature provides for all creatures  great and small, but it is up to us to pick wisely from its pantry ..

I've seen kosher fish gelatin in some mail-order places, but I've never actually bought any. Mostly it's listed as an ingredient in things like marshmallows.

Gelatin is also a natural component of bone broths- I get plenty of gelatin in my diet but without actually buying it as a refined powder.
