Ingredients

  • Red Clover blossoms
  • Sour grass

Directions

Red Clover heads, as the individual blossoms are maturing, have a sweet white part near the stem that can be bitten off for a little bit of sweetness as you are walking along. It would be hard to make a meal of it but it is a welcome bit of sweetness on a warm day. And if you can find what I have always been told was called sour grass, but looks like a pale clover a few inches tall with yellow flowers and upright pods, then you are in luck because the whole plant has a lemony taste. The pods are best tasting, with the leaves second best.
