Cooking Greens

Perennial Vegetables

Author: Earthchild
The first perennial food sources in the spring are SHOOTS. [See article of Apr 6th]  The next to emerge are the GREENS.  The earliest COOKIN' GREENS are probably watercress and dandelions, with the next being stinging nettles.  I love wild plants!  If I have missed your favorite cooking green, please leave a comment!

Cornelian Cherry or European Cornel (Cornus mas)

Ecological niche similar to red-osier dogwood

Author: Phil

And Earth, untroubled,

Unharmed by hoe or plowshare, brought forth all

That men had need for, and those men were happy

Gathering berries from the mountainsides,

Cornel cherries, or blackcaps, and edible acorns.
