Simple Woods Scramble

This delicious and nutritious meal idea comes to us courtesy of author Tom Seymour from his new book Wild Plants of Maine, A Useful Guide. Tom is the author of several books on angling, foraging, and hiking in Maine as well as being a regular columnist for Maine Food & Lifestyle magazine. Read his latest column, “Wild Edibles,” on our TOC page.

It’s time for hen of the woods mushrooms in Maine. Read Tom’s book, and also check out our friend Leslie Land’s blog, for more fine foraging information!
