Of all the wild foods I have ever introduced people to, kiawe tea is by far the all-around favorite. No one can believe the sweetness is all natural, only coming from the beans of kiawe (Prosopis pallida), with nothing else added. So, I taught a couple of classes recently and you can access the recording and the accompanying 9-page PDF with detailed botany, history, ethnobotany, nutritional and medicinal info.
What to expect in this online class :
a short exercise to connect in with this tree
tips and tricks to harvesting the pods
processing and storage
how to make the best cup of kiawe tea
great flavor combinations that pair with kiawe
Q&A – ask me all your questions, group discussion
kiawe season is now!
Harvesting of the pods is highly dependent on the weather. We love and appreciate the rains, but if they come then this wild food harvest season is shortened. The time is now to harvest.
