11 Simple Edible Foods To Forage In Ireland

Here are eleven simple wild foods to easily forage and eat. No preparation needed - just pick and eat. You will find these plants not quite year round, but pretty prevalent most of the year; and all over Ireland.

I have a mix here of meadowland plants such as sheep's sorrel, woodland plants such as old man's beard and mountain plants such as crowberry.

The seed of a yew berry can be fatally poisonous so exercise extreme caution. Also please give the plants priority over your food needs - pick carefully and sparingly - where you have permission. Leaving plenty for the plant to continue strong and plenty for the birds and animals. The environment and nature has to come first.

This is just a quick reference guide. You may consider joining one of our training courses or getting out with an experienced forager. More details here: http://www.outdoorsireland.com/bushcraftsurvival.php and here: http://www.outdoorsireland.com/resources.php.
