re: Nutritional Value Wild Food
- Hi.. I guess your name is Anna?
I'm Steve (in Bermuda), and am also very interested in wild food
nutrition, especially in how non-hybridized and/or wild foods differ
in nutrient values from "domesticated" varieties.
I highly recommend you contact Arthur Haines in Maine (USA). He is
very well regarded in this area, and lives as much as he can from
foraging in his local area.
Here is a video interview (6-part) in which activist and health
motivator Daniel Vitalis interviews Arthur at his home.
In Parts 2 and 3 Arthur processes pignut hickory with step-by-step description.
Here are the links..

"In the face of all-annihilating weapons, the natural next step may be
the use of no weapons. It may be that the only possibly effective
defense against the ultimate weapon is no weapon at all."

National Defense" as included in the book "Home Economics")
