Last week I researched some edible plants that can be found in most areas, here is a list of where to find them and name (sorry about no picture type into Google imags.) 1. Number one is called Amaranth, this edible weeds is fully edible but watch out for spines on the leaves. Whilst being edible the plant contains oxalic acid, it is recommended that you boil the leaves before you eat them, after boiling DO NOT drink the water. This plant is native to the Americas but is found in most Continents. 2.Number two is wild asparagus, wild asparagus has a much thinner stalk the store bought stuff.When eating asparagus cook it like you would at home. It grows in the wild in most countries. 3.Number three is none other than that pesky weed, dandelions! The whole plant is edible, leves, flower roots and all, eat the leaves when their young, like most plants their leaves taste less bitter young, use the flower as a garnish for your dandelion leaf salad and boil the roots in water then drink the water as some dandelion tea! Found in grassy areas, parks gardens and more! Thank you for reading my blog I hope you enjoyed it!
