We Canadians are responsible for many discoveries and inventions advancing modern life such as the electron microscope, alkaline batteries, insulin, and more importantly, basketball, game shows, frozen fish, instant potato flakes, electric stoves and the Bloody Caesar.
Seasonal foraging, the kind your nonno did, is more popular now than ever; in spring we scour the ditches for fiddleheads, the fields for tender sorrel and cicoria; mid-summer brings the joys of wandering on dusty back roads and in prickly brambles for wild blueberries, raspberries and blackberries; late summer into fall is the time we scour the woods for mushrooms. This is our wild harvest, something delicious and free for just the effort of an afternoon's ramble in nature.
