When the world gives you garlic mustard, make pesto! JDCF went live recently with a new Facebook Live program. Jess Carryer, JDCF Outreach and Education Manager, showed us some common edibles that can be foraged close to home and then demonstrated how to make garlic mustard pesto. What a great use for this prolific invasive plant. The recipe for the pesto, and dandelion cookie dough, can be found here: Wild Foods Recipes.
Join us on Facebook Thursday, May 21st at 10:00 AM for another Facebook Live event that is sponsored by Gabby’s Gifts in Galena, IL. The topic will be Local Stream Ecology.
