Description: The bright yellow flowers at first can make this plant appear to be wild mustard, but its (often) wide, hollow stems make it easily discernable.
Food: The flowers may be collected, dried, & crushed into a flour & then mixed into a batter. Raw flowers may then be rolled in the batter & cooked as a fritter or as an ashcake.
Traditional Medicine: The hollow stem may be used to smoke medicinal herbs through.
Wild Willpower looks forward to filming Richard Lonewolf AND many other experts in the future to help them teach everyone via this site for free- AND how to use Positive-Impact Harvesting Techniques so no one ruins the ecosystem or damages their population when harvesting- AND to ensure its continued growth! We’re currently fundraising $ 450,000 to acquire our list of needed resources so we can make this website operate as described here. We are in immediate need of a vehicle to finish documenting his new book & to build this database as well! Even a small amount helps a great deal!
