One of the most important, if not THE most important things to remember when consuming indigenous edibles is that if you are wrong, it may cost you your life.
Some edibles are very obvious, cat tail roots, dandelions (one tastes similar to the mud is comes from, the other is quite bitter), but both are very edible and very obvious.
A very sage piece of advice for anyone that wishes to consume local wild consumables is to not trust your memory for a very long time. By this I mean carry a guide with pictures. Some wild edibles that are perfectly harmless may be closely resembled by not so friendly plant life.
So what are some wild edibles that can be found in the US?
