So, I was thinking today, it's pretty easy to dehydrate and powder leaves. Some leaves have a lot of protein (amaranth leaves, for instance). Seeds can be pretty difficult to harvest, and fruits take longer to dehydrate. So, why not powder lots of leaves?
I'm considering powdering our edible weed leaves next year (all together instead of individually. Then maybe we can make edible weed smoothies or something. Maybe they'd be a tasty seasoning on something. They'd probably contain things like mallow, dandelion, lambsquarter, amaranth, etc.
I plan to powder a lot of domesticated plant leaves, too! :) (Probably more so than weeds.)
I dehydrated and powdered some epazote. this was my first time dehydrating and powdering herbs in a food dehydrator, as far as I remember. It was easy and fun. So, that's why I'm excited to try other leaves.
