Savor the Southwest – Safely!
Our full motto is: appreciating, nurturing, and using the products of the Southwest.
We harvest in a sustainable fashion and encourage you do the same.
Your food safety is important. Many Southwest plants have very specific steps to follow to insure health. From time to time we will post those harvesting guidelines in our blog.
Quick links to them are here:
We share cooking tips from time to time in our blog. Please sign up for our newsletter to be notified of each new post. Best of all – the newsletter will feature forage of the week (in most weeks) offer some cooking tips + plus little recipes that aren’t blog length.
Our bodies need salt so that our nerves can fire and our muscles function. We need iodized salt to help our thyroid function as efficiently as possible. Yes, if you have access to seaweed and eat enough, that’s a healthy alternative.
Please do not let the medical establishment with their salt phobia keep you from taking care of your body. Salt doesn’t cause heart attacks. Sedentary lifestyle and excessive salt consumption can be a problem – but if you work outdoors or otherwise exercise every day, your body will need salt, especially here in the Southwest.
