62 Wild Plants That You Can Eat

62 Wild Plants That You Can Eat

Knowing how to forage for edibles in the great outdoors could quite literally be the difference between life and death.

While we do have the Universal Edibility Test to test the plants we find, I just don’t think that in a survival situation you really have the time to be waiting.

While searching the Internet earlier I came across a website MatterofTrust.org that has lots of information that I believe our readers will appreciate.

This being said, never eat any plant that you find unless you are 100% sure that you can identify them.

The following article from Matter of Trust will show you 62 wild plants that you can eat. I will list the plants below but do check out their link to their post for pictures and information.
