Is this a weird combination? You be the judge. But it can't be bought anywhere! And it's delicious!
The weirdest combination I could think of for this challenge is dried corn kernels, canned sardines, and peppermint candycanes. I have thought about that combination for a long time, but still can't figure out anything that makes sense! In fact, I'll open up my own special contest, right here and right now. I'll give a prize of $5 SBD to the best entry with those ingredients! Contest ends with the payout period for this post.
Getting It All Together!
When it comes to wild food, I have a hard time thinking of anything being really weird. So I'm just going with what I've got on hand.
If you want to know more about how to collect Pine Pollen for yourself, you can check out my earlier Steemit post: How To Harvest Pine Pollen.
In The Kitchen!
I use a simple recipe for my pine pollen pasta: equal amounts of flour and pine pollen, 1 egg and 1 egg yolk, a little olive oil. I'll make a separate post showing how I make it. It's super good!
For the Puffball Caviar, I sautee finely chopped puffball with elephant garlic, olive oil, and white wine. I'll make a post about that soon, too. It's super good!
Is this weird? I'll leave you to be the judge of that. I'll venture, though, that nobody else in my town has eaten this particular combination!
What Do You Think?
- Have you eaten Giant Puffball mushrooms?
- Have you eaten Pine Pollen?
- Do you have any pine trees in near you?
- Would you eat my pine pollen pasta and puffball plate?
I eat a lot of wild plants and show you how, because I believe that we can all have lives that are richer, more secure, more grounded, and more interesting by getting to know the plants and the land around us – in our yards, our parks, and our wild places.
