Are there any folks here who forage or are interested in foraging and cooking together?
SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS - Wild Fennel
I recently went hiking in the SM mountains and noticed lots of wild sage and wondered what else was edible in the mountains. I noticed one plant that looked like dill and smelled minty when it's leaves are crushed. I did some research and found out that it's wild fennel. Very popular in Southern Italy, but not typically sold in grocery stores.
Here's a recipe for a wild fennel & sausage pasta that sounds & looks delicious:
I've found a few links to foraging classes online:
