A uniquely delicious flower whose flavor reminds me of a cross between pumpkin and radish. They come in so many varieties - just let me know what color you're looking for!
My favorite berry. I would eat my weight in huckleberries each year if I could afford it. Slow to collect and tedious to clean but these little berries are worth the effort. I have frozen red and purple huckleberries available.
Caution: eating just one of these pretty purple flowers will give you garlic breath.
Madrone has some of the most recognizable and beautiful bark of any tree. During the dry season, papery curls of it fall to the base of the tree where they can be collected sustainably. Tea made from the bark can have notes of cinnamon and mushrooms.
Great for shrub and wine, these abundant wild berries are vastly under-utilized.
Elderberry produces aromatic flowers in the Spring and Summer. Their complex essence reminds me of tropical fruit, especially pineapple.
The scientific name, monardella odoratissima, tells you everything you need to know. This mountain mint has a wonderful aroma.
Also referred to as dusky onions or "ramps," this native of the Sierras is a favorite among foragers. The small purple flowers of these rugged mountain onions really pack a punch.
Sweet pea is a delicious and abundant vine in our Sierra foothills. I find the flowers and young shoots/tendrils to be especially good. They taste just like peas, but a bit sweeter due to the nectar they use to attract pollinators.
"Peppery" is the word always used to describe nasturtium but it really doesn't do them justice. They are certainly spicy - the flavor reminds me of red hots. This weed is native to the Andes but grows prolifically as an invasive of the California coast. Every part of the plant is edible from the young leaves and vines to the dinner-plate-sized mature leaves to the technicolor flowers and seed-bearing "capers."
