Tasty native food plants - a long tradition. Vol. 7
Lent status: Available
A booklet about Australian pigface and pigweed - terrible names but great plants. Number 7 in the series.
Highly prized by gourmet chefs. Very important source of food and water for animals and insects and even man through history. Common in sandy or disturbed soils. Some are weeds! Apart from their very attractive flowers, what other uses or value do these plants have? Which ones are the most garden worthy? Or on a chef’s menu?
To many some of these are just weeds in the garden, to a naturopath some of these are medicine and to indigenous people and livestock, some are food.To a modern chef these are still an adventure!
