Score! Wild Mustard Greens in the 'Hood

February 14, 2012

We were on a walk in the hills of our Los Angeles neighborhood and spotted a patch of wild mustard greens...score. When they really go off we often see groups of elderly Seventh Day Adventist (vegan) Korean women gathering bagfuls. Our little one couldn't help but taste them despite the spice...the thrill of eating velvety yellow flowers right off the earth in an unexpected situation was too much to resist. We brought home a handful of these mustardy little buds to sprinkle on our kale salad, along with some hemp seeds. I bet you, too, have more edible fruit trees and plants in your hood than you think.
