Miigwhich to the White Earth Tribal and Community College crew of Stephanie Williams, Steven Dahlberg and Becky Christensen for inviting me back to the Wild Food Summit on the White Earth Reservation. It always amazes me what a small group of dedicated people can accomplish. Please watch this video to see the beautiful faces of these folks, learn how to do pit cooking, learn about salsify/goatsbeard and just generally get a feel for this event. We ate an almost 100% wild diet.
Some of the delicious foods included: cattail and watercress salads, rabbit and game hen, acorn burgers, braised thistle stalks, cattail soup, wild rice soup with fiddleheads/wild leeks/burdock stems/dandelion greens and more! Be sure to visit chef extrordinaire Rose Barlow’s website Prodigal Gardens to see some of her recipes. Thanks for all the great food Rose!
*note* when lining pit with leaves, be sure to use ones that are edible. Examples include burdock, cattail, grape and more.
