Next, urban-forager Sara Bir fills us in on the exotic edibles that are right under our noses, even in the city. (Who knew sumac was so easy to find?)
Finally, food historian Heather Arndt Anderson gives us the lowdown on the history of preserving foods, and we discuss the catfight between the canning camp and the fermenting camp.
Meet our panelists: Sara Bir is the author of “The Fruit Forager’s Companion” and the “Pocket Paw Paw Cookbook.” Botanist and food historian Heather Arndt Anderson is the author of four books on food. And Sarah Marshall, the doyenne behind Marshall’s Haute Sauces, is the author of “Preservation Pantry.” Our host is Katherine Cole.
