American green alder. The catkin of the American green alder, abundant in Eeyou Istchee Baie-James, can easily replace pepper to add flavour to your recipes!
Berries. Blueberries, raspberries, cloudberries, cranberries, dwarf raspberries, skunk currant, serviceberries, and crowberries (to name a few): you will find enough to make an excellent boreal fruit salad.
Fireweed. These large purple flowers are rich in vitamins A and C, in addition to coloring a plate! Its young shoots, picked in spring, can be cooked like asparagus, while its flowers and leaves, harvested at the beginning of flowering, will enhance your summer salads.
