Farm fresh asparagus is crisp and full of flavor-locally we source from Ernie Sichewski from Basswood/Sandy Lake area.
Actually a vegetable but often used like a fruit in crumbles, pie, and sauces. Note, never pay for rhubarb as it grows prolifically and people are all too happy to give it away.
Brilliant citrus flavor with herbaceous notes. Great in iced or hot tea and or salads for garnish.
My favorite mushroom to pick. Grows abundantly in the Riding Mountain area. Fruits from early June to late June, found on dead black poplar trees close to swamps and marshes. Manitoba oyster mushrooms are a choice mushroom. Disclaimer, consult a field guide and expert before you eat any wild mushrooms.
Pick the yellow flowers off for a sweet, florally treat. Kids love to do this.
Use wild flowers to decorate your tables. It adds another level of care and beauty and enhances the experience before your guests, family, or friends even try the food
