      1    Info file
 
  There are no poisonous plants, berries or mushrooms north of the tree
  line South of the tree line the usual prudence when encountering an
  unknown species is required
  
  These wild greens all make good salad greens:
  
  bracken or brake-fern                   dandelion lamb's quarters
  pigweed scurvy grass                            sourdock strawberry
  blight red flowering pigweed wild mustard wooly lousewort
  
  Fireweed: treat new spring shoots as for asparagus and summer leaves
  as for spinach or any other green.
  
  Fiddleheads: as well as the curled spring fronds, the growing portion
  of the fern at the base of the stem is edible all summer as are the
  root stalks. Try them boiled 20 minutes, then breaded with eggwash
  and dried bread crumbs and pan fried in butter.
  
  Labrador tea: high vitamin C content; makes a tasty tisane.
  
  Mountain sorrel: leaves and stems are good in salads, cooked as
  greens and in cream soups. Can be fermented as per sauerkraut.
  
  Scurvy grass: similar to water cress. Very high in vitamin C.
  
  Spruce tips: for tea. Not very tasty but a common and easily available
  source of vitamin C winter and summer.
  
  Poplar and Jack pine: another excellent source of vitamin C. Scrape
  the pulp from new growth, between the wood and the bark and serve in
  a bowl.
  
  Willow buds: serve with milk and sugar like breakfast cereal.
  
  Wild rhubarb: as well as the common fruit dessert recipes try it
  simmered and dressed with salt, pepper, butter and a bit of sugar as
  a vegetable.
  
  Wooly Lousewort or Ussusaq: stems are good raw in salads or cooked as
  greens.
  
  ROOTS
  
  Alpine bistort: nut-like flavor when cooked.
  
  Dandelion: dry and grind for a coffee substitute.
  
  Liquorice or Masu: similar to carrots.
  
  Wooly Lousewort or Ussusaq: similar to carrots.
