Foraging in Iowa! https://www.destinysgardenherbs.com/apps/photos/ Foraging in Iowa! Serviceberries With a taste like a blueberry but with a bit more depth and pop, serviceberries (known by other names depending on region) are often grown as landscaping/ornamental trees. https://www.destinysgardenherbs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=206025340 206025340 Wild Mushrooms! One of our favorites is this chicken of the woods (Cincinnatus variety, similar to "sulfur shelf" but with white pores and underside). It has a texture just like chicken and fabulous rich mushroom flavor. https://www.destinysgardenherbs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=206025341 206025341 Stinging Nettle Who'd ever think such a painful sting would come from such a healthy plant? The early spring leaves of stinging nettle are loaded with vitamins and minerals - great lightly steamed with a touch of sea salt, garlic, fresh squeezed lemon, then topped with a bit of feta cheese and freshly cracked black pepper. Also dries really well to make a super tea. Just harvest with gloves on and take only the top few sets of leaves. https://www.destinysgardenherbs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=206025350 206025350 Morels Mushroom mania starts early at Destiny's garden. Our five year old buddy spotted this beauty by the old apple tree. Nice work, young sir! https://www.destinysgardenherbs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=206025351 206025351
