Young, small wild veg­eta­bles are the most de­li­cious ones.

Col­lect wild veg­gies and herbs in a pa­per bag in dry weather.

Herbs and veg­eta­bles stay fresh and edi­ble in the re­frig­er­a­tor for about two days af­ter pick­ing.

Prefer­ably, cook and store veg­eta­bles and herbs im­me­di­ately af­ter gath­er­ing. Rinse with cold wa­ter be­fore use.

Use them fresh or dry them at room tem­per­a­ture or in a des­ic­ca­tor. You can also store them in the freezer: dip in boil­ing wa­ter, make lit­tle bun­dles and pack in a zip-lock bag.

Do not pick next to roads or in­dus­trial ar­eas. Do not col­lect from lawns that are cut with a petrol-fu­elled lawn mower.

Wild veg­eta­bles and herbs can be gath­ered from early spring un­til late au­tumn in the North­ern hemi­sphere.

Pick only plants that you recog­nise.

Pick only healthy-look­ing plants.

Re­spect the en­vi­ron­ment and the law but also know your rights. In Fin­land we are law­fully al­lowed to pick wild veg­eta­bles, herbs, berries and mush­rooms ev­ery­where. Check lo­cal laws on­line.
