These superb edibles can be found growing under mature oaks, beech, and maple. They can be identified by their lack of gills, thin-bodied walls, and pungent aroma. Black trumpets are quite fragile-looking, but they pack a ton of flavor, similar to truffles.
Milkweed Flower Buds
The common milkweed provides many different edibles at various stages of its lifespan. The young shoots can be eaten in early spring, and their seed pods are edible in late summer. Their flower buds are also a fine edible, and have a broccoli-like flavor. Since these are the primary food for monarch butterflies (and other pollinators), be sure to leave plenty flower buds behind!
