Ever Eaten a Pine Tree? November 2, 2011

Posted by Retired Geezer in Food.

Pine Trees: Not just for Breakfast anymore.

Euell Gibbons became famous for asking, “have you ever eaten a pine tree?”

A lot of folks had a laugh over that, but perhaps Euell will have the last laugh. We all probably have an ancestor who ate a pine tree or part of it now and then. I know I did. And people may eat pine again. It’s a family with over 200 species and has served man well, famine food to ship masts. So much has been written about this family let me see if I can say a few things others haven’t.

Continuing on with the self-help Theme of Innocent Bystanders ™, I proudly present episode 92 of “Eat The Weeds.com”.

I guess I’m a little confused. Why exactly are we looking for more greenery to eat? Aren’t there enough vegetables to avoid already?

I am no threat to broccoli.

My rule of thumb — if a vegetable smells like farts when you cook it, don’t eat it.

And what’s the deal with Asparagus making your Pee smell funny?

Is that normal?

Does it affect Wimmins too?
