Drink in the Wild: Teas, Cordials, Jams and More

Hilary Stewart
$12.99


Drink in the Wild is an attractive and handy guidebook that presents 50 wild plants—each in a full page, finely worked line drawing, together with a description of appearance and habitat, to aid in identification. The plants are all native to the Pacific Northwest, and many of them grow right across Canada and the US. Surprisingly some even thrive in city and suburban areas.

In a friendly, yet expert fashion, author and illustrator Hilary Stewart explains how to identify, harvest, dry and store the plant parts, then gives recipes for preparing 60 drinks and 8 jams and jellies. She also offers practical and decorative uses for many of the plants, as well as providing interesting notes about them, particularly on the various uses by First Nations people.
