For questions related to the collection and preparation, but not identification, of food plants from the wild.

Many foods are traditionally obtained from the wild; some are unmistakable. Some need special preparation to make pleasant foods, and it's not always obvious when some are ripe.

We can't identify plants with sufficient certainty to be safe, so such questions have been deemed off-topic. Recipe requests are also off-topic, and not just for wild foods.
