SUMMER FORAGING (ADULT CLASS)
July 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$75.00
Summer is a plentiful time for gathering wild foods, herbs, and fungi. The summer sun ripens wild berries and activates aromatic herbs adding layers of nutrient-dense flavors to foraged dishes. With the right mix of temperature and moisture, we are likely to find some fungi popping up on the Foxfire trails. You may even have a chance to taste some chanterelle mushrooms cooked with ramp leaf butter in a cast iron skillet. We will also explore how to preserve and ferment wild summer flavors using a variety of methods such as jam and jelly, vinegar, and kraut.
What you might expect to see: chanterelle mushrooms, wild blackberry, wineberries, Queen Anne’s lace, mountain mint, wild bergamot, elderflowers and berries, kudzu flowers
