Wild Food: Magnolia petals

A handful of fresh magnolia petals

There's something about prehistoric plants that give me the shudders. I love the idea of these plants preceding humans on this planet. The presence of magnolias (Magnoliaceae family) recorded to be at least 20 million years old and plants in the same family being up to 95 million years old. Mind blowing!

In this blog I explore questions such as; are all magnolias edible, which ones taste the best and how to use magnolias in recipes and drinks. I share 4 magnolia recipes, lots of tips from my fellow professional foragers and a few small digressions on the way!
