Pignut: Wilderness Survival Food

Pig nuts is not the most appetizing name, but Conopodium majus doesn’t sound that tasty either.  Regardless of what you want to call them, pig nuts can be a great source of survival food  in the wilderness.  They can be found all over Europe and North America.  You can gather then using only your fingers, and they can be eaten raw after peeling the skin around the “nut”, which is actually part of the root.  Here is a short video that shows the plant at various stages of growth, making it easier to identify, and at the end it shows two plants that look similar that you need to beware of.
