FIRST WILD FOOD THIS YEAR

FIRST WILD FOOD THIS YEAR

Wild mushroom side dish for lunch.

Judas’s ear or Jew’s ear (Auricularia auricula-judae) is an edible mushroom most commonly found on Elder trees (Sambucus nigra).

It grows during the cold season. A great way to get wild foods into your diet when there isn’t much else around compared to the rest of the year.

I lightly simmered Aegopodium podagraria for dinner as a little side dish. Known as Goutweed or Ground Elder.¬† It’s also great to add in smoothies or a salad.

These first shoots of the year should be particularly delicious.

Here in Denmark a lot of people see them as a weed or even a pest in the garden. I like that I can go out in the garden and pick a nutritious side dish for tonight’s dinner
