Episode 13: Backyard Foraging

March 29, 1997

Naturalist Steven Brill, author of Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild and Not So Wild Places, is your guide to delicious backyard foraging! The cattail season is NOW! The sap is running and Jane and Michael Stern have been sampling the best that New Hampshire has to offer. Pick up your spouts and buckets, put on your wellies and a warm shirt and get to Polly's Pancake Parlour in Sugar Hill, New Hampshire. Commentator Mark Bittman fills us in on farm-raised vs. wild fish. We have a recipe from Lynne for roast leg of lamb with hot and sweet onion confit, we'll answer some listener mail, and have our first installment of "Stump the Cook"—our homage to the old Tonight Show.
