Wild Foods – From Field to Table

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 every Thursday morning at 10:00 AM for another Facebook Live event. If you do not follow JDCF on Facebook, you can do so here.  Simply click ‘like’ and ‘following’ in the left-hand corner just below the cover photo.
