    no but if i can find some raupo in flower, i am gonna collect some pollen and make cakes to try. my guess is it would be just starchy and tastless but then if you never ever ate sugar. your whole life. maybe starch would taste sweet to you?

    they used to make bread out of acorns way back when food was scarce. i think that sort of thing was literally just getting calories in. i've eaten an acorn when i was a kid to try and it wasnt particularly tasty.

    Food and hunger are constant problems in Finland’s harsh environment. Finlandians are regularly forced to eat leaves, husks, hay, straw and moss in order to survive. But one of the country’s most unusual and popular staple foods is pettuleipä, or bark bread. It’s made from the nutritious inner bark of pine and birch trees, and it’s making its way to more and more restaurant dining tables as the trendy “regressive” or “primitive” food movement picks up steam in America.

    I've always wanted to try making bread out of cattail pollen too! Maybe I'll actually REMEMBER this spring before the pollen is all gone!
