Sumac. The red berries can be eaten as is and are lemony. Or you can brew them into a great lemonade or tea.

Jack-in-the-Pulpit. The root bulb is good when boiled or roasted. Can be used as thickener, ground into flour or eaten like a new potato.

Nettle. Young nettle shoots can be gathered and boiled. They are very good, used as a flavoring herb. Nettle also makes strong cordage.

Jewelweed. The seeds are edible and real good. Also a medicine plant that I will touch on later.

Wild roses. The petals and buds make great tea.

Evergreen or Spuce. The needles make a decent tea, if sweetened.
