Dirt Magazine published my second article this month. This ones entitled “Kales Wild Cousin” in which I share about some of the great wild edibles of the Brassica (mustard) family.
“That yellow stuff you put on hot dogs? That’s right, mustard. Mustard is famous for its hot-dog-embellishing seeds, but it is actually a common name for an entire plant family known as brassicacea, or brassica for short.
Through thousands of years of co-evolution with humans, the original lowly field mustard has turned into an incredible variety of our commercially grown food, like broccoli, cabbage, mustard greens, brussels sprouts, kale, collards, and arugula.
Luckily there are also wild edible mustards that you can find growing just about anywhere, from your backyard, to any park, for free. Nature plants them readily, and it’s mighty kind of her to do so.”
