    Default Alaska Edibles

    Wanted to know if there is any info on everything that is out there we can gather for the house to survival foods. Seasonal as well.

    I am familiar with a few, chaga, berries, fireweed and a handfull of others. But would like to know more. I see we are surrounded by numerous plants, bark and berries..lol


    I did some searching on the forum..limited info found.
    Thanks

    I'm glad you started this thread DH01. I've been wanting the same information. I was really intrigued by all the mushrooms also. There are so many. We were on the peninsula this summer and I found this really cool bright red mushroom with white spots all over it. When we got back to the cabin, it was one of the most poisonous of them all. I want to know which ones to eat. From what I've read, the only way to tell if most of them are poisonous is to dig the entire thing out of the ground and look at the very bottom.
