Two Old Culinary Traditions

Coconut ice cream with raspberry, this and other recipes below
I started the tradition of picking wild berries in the summer with my children about five years ago. I grew up doing that has a in New York's Hudson River Valley. Foraging for food has a old cross cultural culinary tradition that commoners have practiced around the globe for centuries. At a very young age, commoners learned how to live off the land. I encourage parents to take some time and learn from specialist in your area and or from books about what you can forage in your area. Then start a healthy family tradition like picking fresh berries and serving them over ice cream. By the way, making home made ice cream also has a old cross cultural tradition.
