Once again, that time of year has arrived - the time when there isn't much outside to forage, and I need to turn to my pantry for wild foods. Thankfully, as always, I did a good job of putting up food throughout the growing season. I think you'd be shocked to see just how much food is in my pantry. I've got wild plants stuffed into every corner, some dried, some canned, some frozen, and others pickled. My most prized pantry staple are my dried porcini (Boletus edulis) mushrooms. They are one of the most flavorful foods I've ever tasted, and can punch up even the most bland foods.
