We went out to get some fireweed today.
I don't know of any area where it doesn't grow. It's pretty much edible all the way till they start blooming. And when that happens you can eat the flowers!
It's a great source of vitamin C and pro-vitamin A. Some of it we'll put raw in the salad and the rest we'll sauté with butter, salt and pepper. Should go well with the grilled ribs.
