    Five Easy Edible Wild Plants

    A key bit of knowledge carried by the OG bushcrafters, such as Nessmuck, Kephart, Hammett, and Jaeger, was wild edible plants.

In plants, it helps redirect excess sunlight energy into non-destructive pathways. Pretty amazing! Granted, you could carry vitamin C tablets along on your adventure, but considering the ascorbic acid in these tablets is always synthetic, there are better choices for bushcrafters.
