It's an amazing thing to walk down the street and to pick up a weed or a flower and eat it; it's a skill that I started off knowing little about, but have come to appreciate more and more. This episode of The Perennial Plate explores some of the common edibles that you may see around town or in the woods--and shows you how to cook some of the greens. (Check out the full recipe for day lily ravioli.)

Note: Before eating any wild edible, make sure you know what it is; double-check field guides before you eat.
