Vegetable intake in the taiga

Taiga is a complex habitat. Get nutrition in boreal conditions is difficult. Is not always possible to get meat, protein foods. In this case you should make your nutrition from plant foods. Today we will discuss how plants can be fed into the taiga. Even in summer, boreal vegetation is not so diverse, so to find a meal - you need to have knowledge that is available to eat, and what is not.

In late summer, autumn in the forest abundance of berries: strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, cranberries, cloudberries, blueberries, raspberries, lemongrass, etc. Many berries are suitable for food and winter freezing directly on the branches. If you can find under the snow-berry - can be good to eat.


Cattail - all known plant that grows along the banks of most boreal lakes. The roots of the cattail are edible, rich in starch. To dig, pull out the stem and rinse thoroughly with cattail roots, resembling noodles. The roots can be eaten raw, just like that, or bake in the fire, which is much more interesting and tastier.

In the taiga, a lot of edible herbs. You can also find wild or feral plants with edible tubers: potato, turnip, turnip - but this is rare. Sorrel, nettles, wild garlic onions - will help in making an improvised soup of the taiga.

Bumps. Nuts from the cones of coniferous trees (pine, larch, cedar) - perfectly suited for food. Most importantly, cones and nuts can be extracted in the winter when other food is practically not get it. It is impossible to collect cones from the ground, they must have already checked the local animals, and the rest seem to be nuts - are empty. We must try to knock down cones from the tree. Or pack a heavy blows on the trunk of cedar or pine - cones quail down. Especially good at this technique can be cold.


Hazelnut is common in the taiga. This is an excellent, energy-rich food.

Mushrooms. Although, of course, mushrooms - no plants, but they are also relevant to mention here (since no game). Almost all of the summer and autumn in the forest you can find mushrooms. It is important to well-versed in the mushrooms, not to eat poisonous. By this, I recommend not to laugh at mushroom pickers, and by the rows adjacent to the "silent hunters" to at least have a view of the edible mushroom forest. Study guides - also good, but nothing beats a visual experience, especially if you've never fond of mushrooms.
