wild greens in winterPosted: January 29, 2010
Foraging for wild greens on January 28th. It’s been a fairly mild winter here, the temperature only having dropped as low as 8 degrees Fahrenheit in a place that usually sees a seasonal low closer to -8. And we had snow cover for our cold-snap, which is probably why we still have a few patches of wild greens to pick. These are some kind of wild cress, Pepper Cress is the Appalachian name for it, I’m told. We made a pesto out of it last night and it was good, though a little stringy. Next time, we’ll chop it up before we grind it. Today we put it in salad.
