Cattails aren’t just for muskrats anymore, nor are acorns just for squirrels! In this hands-on class, professional forager Gil Schwartz will demonstrate various techniques for harvesting and transforming the rhizomes of cattails and oak nuts into starchy, gourmet cuisine. After cracking, peeling, picking, and grinding the foods into flour, we will incorporate our yield into creamy soup, flatbread, and more. Empower yourself with the knowledge and experience to utilize some of the most nourishing and abundant wild food sources in our region.
