Wild Ginger (Asarum caudatum). This amazing edible wild plant is really cool! We delved into the medicinal properties of this species down in our feed earlier this year if you’re interested! At first glance this leaf looks almost identical to species of wild violets in the forest but has a special smell and it’s roots and leaves host very small hairs. Both the roots and the leaves are edible and have a similar flavour to that of commercial ginger with less intensity. When smelled fresh these leaves impart an almost citronella like aroma which can be described as slightly lemony and slightly gingery. The leaves raw are a little bitter alone so traditionally they have been brewed fresh or dry into a wild tea! The root/rhizome can also be dried and ground and used in place of commercial ginger powder in the wild. The leaves can also be candied and used as a sort of cough medicine both good for colds and stomach upset. This particular species grows in shaded mountain and lowland ecosystems in southern BC! Just a note of caution: Pregnant women should never consume this wild species of ginger (not related to commercial ginger) as it has historically been used as a contraceptive (prevents pregnancy). Please also ensure to follow wildcrafting principles with this plant as it is declining in numbers so please only take what is really needed. Commercial ginger is often a more viable and economic option! ❤️🌿 foragedfood wildfood wildfoodlove wildcraft wildcrafting foraging forager forage wildedibles ediblewildplants wildernessculture forestfood foresttotable wildcooking plantmedicine culinaryherbalism herbalism herbalmedicine wildchef botany love life homecooking backtonature rewilding inspire asarum wildginger asarumcaudatum ginger

It's puffball season! Yumm! I haven't physically been able to do any hiking and foraging this summer/fall and I've absolutely been devastated about it. My father-in-law found these 2 beauts and is sharing with us! There are so many ways to prepare these, but I prefer the simple fry in butter seasoned with salt and pepper. 🍄🍽🧂 How do you prepare your puffball mushrooms?

Guttation: this is a marvelous example of how some fungi (Fomitopsis pinicola, in this case) exude droplets or beads of moisture. Some are clear, others are milky or coloured (hydnellum peckii comes to mind for instance). This mushroom is believed to have many medicinal properties, but is not in the choice edible/comestible category. wordoftheday fungi forager mushrooms

A forest resource! Western wild ginger (Asarum caudatum) is lovely to scratch and sniff, lovely in tea, lovely as a groundcover, lovely all around. Apparently it sometimes tricks ants into carrying [and dispersing] seeds back to their colonies by producing a fatty edible piece attached to each seed.

While foraging has connected me more to my surroundings of living in the PNW, it has also taught me the value of patience, intuition, and gratitude.... . . Foraging is not as glamorous as the romanticized imagery my brain once had. It’s a dirty activity. You spend hours driving around the forest, stopping along side the roads, bushwhacking your way through wet ferns and dead stumps in hopes of stumbling across some shrooms. Some days you make out like a bandit while others you may turn up empty handed. . . It’s those moments, where I feel I “wasted” a day or I’m disappointed about my small bounty that I express gratitude. Thankful for what I have found and the opportunity to find peace and quiet in the woods. 🌲🙏🏼🌲🙏🏼🌲 . . . foraging forager chanterelles mushroomforaging mushroomforager mycology mycophile mushroomlover pnw pnwforaging spiritualwisdom spirituallessons spiritualjourney spiritualblogger spiritualblog urbanhomestead seattlehealer pnwwitch ecospiritual pnwblog pnwblogger foragedmushrooms ecoblog ecoblogger

I had almost given up on this mushroom season and my usual mushroom spots. Then, out of nowhere at a very random spot somewhere in Northern Jutland I found the most amazing chanterelle spot with gigant chanterelles (bigger than the one on the first photo - but they were a bit too old and rotten)!

After sitting with the luna moth from my last post for a time, the thought occurred to me that I could keep it and when it died pin and frame it. At that stage in their life luna moths do not eat, their only goal is to mate. I could keep it safe in one room to give it enough freedom to move about and spend time with it each evening as if a dear friend. Whether that is right or wrong was not what I was looking to answer, as morality is always subjective and imposing it upon circumstances clouds the clarity of what really is. What I want to know is quite simply what will the outcome of either choice be - to keep the luna moth for the few short days it had left or to release it back outside? To imprison it would lead my heart down the path of regret once it is dead, a small death of the heart once it is all said and done. Heartache if you will. To part ways and release it will allow it soar off and find its mate. Here it's interesting because the child holds a butterfly in their hand. So we can infer the memory of holding the Luna moth, as childhood is precisely that for those of us who are grown - a memory - will remain. The dog to the side echoes a basic truth of knowing when to halt desire and overriding it with the discipline. Here understanding the basic nature of my heart and staying true to that is paramount. I know my heart and it can be quite soft-hearted. Although I would loved to have pinned the moth and framed it as a keepsake, I would forever look upon it with bittersweet regret. You can find readings such as this that help you understand the outcome of choices on my site under Book a Reading.

I've been out blackberrying!! My mum and I used to go out for blackberries just after school went back, and I loved it.

There are so many wonderful plants to explore on Governors Island, including quite a few you might not be accustomed to seeing in this region. The plantings on the island, many of them abundant in points further south, were chosen with an eye on global warming to be able to thrive in warmer temperatures.

Post full moon dreaminess... Thinking about all the challenges I've faced recently and the magic circles I cast. Leaning into wearing my horse brass pendant on buckskin from my first deer hide I braintanned, and all my other protections. I harnessed this Full moon to aid me in protecting myself and honoring my boundaries. I've always struggled not to give in, to apologize excessively, and ask permission to exist. It doesn't feel good. It's uncomfortable, but it is necessary work to overcome these tendencies and patterns. . . . . Learning to sit quietly in myself and feel secure. Learning to hear the voices of my loved ones and their truths. Learning to listen truly and meaningfully. All the skills in the world mean little if you cannot share them with others. Today I am grateful for the hardest skill I have ever worked towards: communication and its betterment. Thank you to all my beloveds who do this work and may you find yourself with boundaries that suit you and uplift you. . . . . forager foraging hedgecraft hedgewitch appalachia witch witchcraft traditionalwitchcraft folkmagic appalachianfolkmagic herbalism herbalist folkherbalism folkmedicine folkmagic appalachia appalachianfolkmedicine

This psychoactive mushroom, Amanita Muscaria, has some iconic roots in indigenous history. Tribes of Northern Europe consumed raw caps of this mushroom to go from warrior to “berserker”. The berserker stereotype includes a war dance & screaming to induce an exciting frenzy that peaks in a period of inhuman strength, rage, and ignorance to damage or pain, followed by a long sleepy slumber. Since one of this mushroom’s active compounds metabolizes into the second active compound, this was a delicate dance, that marked an experienced warrior. Without performing this dance, the mushroom would have a very different effect, inducing nausea and mood bipolarity. Another, more certain way people would circumvent negative effects was by preparing a mulled wine out of the mushroom. Only experienced shamans should prepare this “Sacred Wine”. 😉

My homemade spiced blackberry jam on a naughty bit of brioche out in the sun 🌸✨ recipe below if you like a little spice in your life... spicegirl jammybugger foreverforaging Sundaymorning weekendvibes . . . . . . . Spiced Blackberry Jam 🌸✨ Wash 1kg of blackberries, then put them in a pan over a low heat. Heat them until the berries release their juices, then use a potato masher to further break them up. Add 1kg of granulated sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground cloves and the zest and juice of 1 lemon to the pan. Keep stirring on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Once the sugar has completely dissolved, turn the heat up to boiling point, and boil the mixture for 15 to 20 minutes. After this time check the consistency is correct - you can do this by putting a tiny amount on a cold plate and running your finger through it, if the mixture makes a little channel where your finger has been then the jam is ready. Carefully transfer the jam in to sterilised jam jars and put the lid on straight away. Leave to set and enjoy the next day ✨

.🍂🕯🌒🕯🍂. • D R Y A D S - S A D D L E • [Polyporus squamosus] . This glorious fungi gains it's common names ~ Scaley Polypore and Dryad's Saddle, from it's striking appearance and impressive size - the scaley, tough texture resembling a leather horse's saddle. Typically being a forest fruiting fungi has lead to an association with the mystical and magical Dryads, Nymphs, Faery Folk and otherworldly spirits of the forest.🍂👣🍁 . "Drys" holds the meaning "Oak"/"Tree", and "Nymph" - "Young maiden." The roots of the Dryad and the Nymph stem from Ancient Greek mythology, with tales of old stating these sacred female divinities spend their long lives acting as watchful guardians and fierce protectors of the trees they were born from, and watching over the natural elements, flora and fauna of their nature dwellings.🌲🏔🌊🌱 . Dryads Saddle is also referred to as Pheasants Back, due to its feather-like scales, and cream/tan/brown speckled appearance. Being a polyporus fungi, its underside flesh is stark white with an abundance of tubes and pours that collect morning dew.💧 . This beautiful fungi assists in the breaking down of dead-wood debris and are most commonly seen on tree-stumps, fallen logs, and dead or dying trees. Typically growing in large fans, funnels and shelf/bracket formations and fruiting throughout spring to late summer. 🌿🌬🍁 . The Dryad's Saddle typically grows to a height of 6cm and can reach an impressive cap size of up to 60cm in diameter, with caps being up to 5cm thick, beginning convex and flattening with age. . This fungi is sought after by fungi foragers as it is edible, best when young, as with maturity these mushrooms become tough and indigestible. Dryads saddle's aroma is likened to lemon, watermelon rind, and cucumbers, it's taste is said to be "woodsy" and "earthy".🍂🍋🍂 . . . natureworship sacred sacrednature dryadssaddle polyporussquamosus polypore dryad nymph faery folklore mythology mushroom fungi mycology mushroomsociety mycologysociety forager fungiphotography darkphotography dark darknature naturestreasures forest nature floraandfauna forestdweller forestwitch witch pagan heathen 🌒✨
