Although we no longer grind our mesquite beans in metates worn into the Earth, or pit bake our cholla buds, mescal, or harvested mariposa lilies, we can still find unique, intriguing, delicious, and nutritious ways to incorporate foraged plant foods into our day-to-day meals. From vinegars, ferments, and syrups, to pancakes, nut breads, and atoles, John will share with you some of his experience and insights into preparing our local wild plant foods. In this hands-on class, you will learn to prepare acorn meal, saguaro seeds, and other foods of the Sonoran desert to create delicious, gourmet meals at home. Allow your imagination to wander over the local desert and mountain terrain in search of gustatory delights!

The Sonoran desert holds a vast array of edible plants. There are nearly 400 edible plants found in the low desert alone. When we add the high elevations of the sky islands the diversity of wild food plants is staggering. Join John for a discussion (with slideshow), and sampling, of our great variety of wild edible plants. The nutrition, and unique tastes are two simple reasons to take to foraging for your food. The experience of relating with the wyld Earth to gather one’s food is a revolutionary act in itself.
