3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Solid Intro to Wild Edibles, But Could Use More Visuals 15 mai 2014
Par Crispus_Attacks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Have you ever been out in nature with a friend, only to watch them nonchalantly pick a leaf or berry, or even unearth a root and begin eating it? When you ask what they are doing, they inevitably seem surprised – saying something like “Oh, this is ____, you can tell by the flowers. Here, try some. It’s good.”

Have you ever wanted to be that in-the-know, nature-eating friend? If so, this book is for you.

Edible Plants for beginners offers a quick primer on foraging history, some rules of thumb and techniques for the activity, and a fairly extensive set of edible plant profiles and accompanying recipes. There are also appendices on making tinctures and the top ten (most common) poisonous plants in North America, many of which are flower garden mainstays.

The information is presented well, and there are copious warnings and best practices to keep greenhorn foragers from endangering themselves with look-alike, out of season and contaminated plants.

While this is a beginner’s guide, I wish there were more visuals. Cramming the book with multiple photos of every edible would not be feasible. However, the introductory sections about foraging would have been even more evocative with paintings, drawings or photos of indigenous people gathering edible plants into handmade baskets. Stock photos of forests, urban growth, gardens and other environs would also make the activity of foraging come alive in the pages.

While the one photo per edible plant is appreciated, drawings or photos of the different parts of the plants would be great too. It also seems a little ironic that the top ten plants that will poison you don’t even get pictures or drawings. It seems to be taken for granted that the reader will have to use the internet or a more comprehensive book to really get serious – “Edible Wild Plants for Beginners” seems to be relegating itself the status of stepping stone in that way.

Disclosure: I received this book at no charge.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Learn the basics of edible wild plants with this informative book. 13 juin 2014

Before reading Edible Wild Plants for Beginners: The Essential Edible Plants and Recipes to Get Started, I was under the impression that the weeds growing in my backyard were just that--weeds. Yet this informative guide, which covers everything one needs to know about edible wild plants, opened my eyes to new possibilities.

The book features comprehensive profiles of approximately 30 well-known edible wild plants. Included is everything a beginner would need to know such as: common plant names, physical features, taste, where to locate the edible parts of the plants, common uses of each plant, how and where to forage, transporting, preserving, and much more. Even better, each plant profile is accompanied by a color photo to further assist the novice in easily identifying the different plant species.

Chapter seven is where the reader will find a diverse selection of recipes and remedies derived from each of the featured plants. It was interesting to discover that one can concoct a gin cocktail from dandelions! How about buffalo wing milkweed pods as an appetizer?

In the back of the book there is a handy glossary, tincture recipes (80 proof alcohol or higher works best), and a list of ten of the most common poisonous plants. Now here is where color photos would have been especially meaningful for the novice and the expert alike, yet none were included.

Overall, Edible Wild Plants for Beginners: The Essential Edible Plants and Recipes to Get Started is a good read that's both educational and entertaining.

What I liked: this is a book I am interested in because I have been curious about trying wild plants but didn't know which ones are edible. I love the pictures of the edible plants as well as the helpful descriptions and recipes. What I wished: this book mentioned multiple poisonous plants in both the beginning and end of book but had NO pictures of them, which really bothered me. I know I can look pics up myself but it would have been handy to have them all in this one book.

Very comprehensive information regarding wild plants that are edible. Very easy to read and understand. Book gave a complete history of how long humans have been eating wild edible plants.

I found it very useful for distinguishing between good edible plants and the ones that could make you very sick or worse. These wild edible plants have not been changed and are very natural. The naturally found nutrients are not altered by chemicals or cultivation in any way.

Great information on where to look for, types and identifying characteristics of edible wild plants, in plain language. I didnt feel like I had to have any prior knowledge or experience regarding edible wild plants. The book also broke down the exact parts of edible wild plants that can be eaten and the other parts of the same plant to stay away from. Also, if the plant can be safely eaten raw or if needed to be cooked.

This is a great book for a beginner like myself. I was not disappointed with all the information this book contained

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An Enjoyable Basic Book on Foraging 20 juillet 2015
Par By CJs Pirate - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Edible Wild Plants for Beginners is a basic book about foraging for food. There's plenty to read about and a color photo from each item which is discussed. However, since many plants which are discussed have more than one edible portion, an accompanying photo of that portion should also be included; hence the 4* review. Only a few plants have photos of all edible portions. The photos offered are very clear and sharp in print form but not as good digitally.

The authors make no claim that by reading this book one might become an instant expert. In fact, quite the opposite. They offer a four step "Universal Edibility Test," which, when used correctly, takes about two days to complete the analyzation of any given unknown potentially edible wild food.

The book offers recipes and remedies from wild plants. Additionally, there are two appendixes entitled (a) Ten Steps to Making Tinctures and (b) Ten Most Common Poisonous Plants. Resources and references are also available.

I also opted for the digital download for an additional 99¢. This medium does not seem to suffer from issues that some other downloads have mentioned. All information including the photographs is there.
