Comissaryqueen,

Here are some of the sites I found when I did a search:

Are you near Black Mountain? This site features a class they will have there: http://www.localharvest.org/event.jsp?id=2878

Poisonous plants of NC (good to know what NOT to eat!): http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/c...son/poison.htm

List of books on the subject: http://www.main.nc.us/naturenotebook/books.html

Edible plants newsletter: http://www.wildfoodadventures.com/newsletter.html

I hope this helps.

Barbara

TE=marmalady]My Grandma used to make them, but she'd only pick the tiny, little leaves that were still tender. She'd then fry up some bacon, crumble it up; leave some of the bacon grease in the pan, add some sugar, s/p, and the greens, just til they wilted. Served w/'Yankee cornbread'. Yum![/QUOTE]Marmalady, yu is right, I'm going to try some this way..I saw some greens in the grocery today and will pick some up on saturday..Thanks for the great idea.

Dandylion greens were used by my grandmother & mother. They were dug out of the yard (no fertilizer then) scrubbed rinsed etc and boiled with salt pork, drained, splashed with vinegar, salt & pepper. They were soooo good. Now we use fertilized and weed killer so can't dig then out of the lawn anymore!!
