Can I eat newspaper?

Can I Eat This-filter, with a twist. We are doing a sort of Futurist cookbook style dinner which will feature a number of experimental, non-traditional meals. I am planning to make a Casserole of Declining Print Media, which will be a regular lentil stew with strips of various newspapers added just before serving. Will people die if they eat a few bits of newspaper? I figure its OK because don't English people wrap their chips in it?

We're totally going to eat these if you don't stop us.

Our new apartment comes with a garden that contains a mix of both edible plants and decorative plants. There are a few plants that we're pretty sure are edible, but we'd like to be 100% sure before we, you know, eat them. Help us out? Pictures inside. [more inside]

What in the world do I bring to a Presbyterian covered dish dinner?

I have been racking my brain all week trying to figure out a main dish to bring to a Presbyterian covered dish dinner I have to go to this Sunday. Normally this would not require this much brainpower but of course, it has a theme: international. The other challenge-we are on a pretty tight budget at the moment. I need something edible, inexpensive, and with at least a tepid nod of the head to the theme. [more inside]

how to make tasty edible batteries

I remember testing 9 volt batteries with my tongue as a kid to see if they contained charge, and having a truffle or cordial that behaved like that would be neat. and perhaps it could be hooked up to a grape or jelly that would glow when current is applied. Is this possible? people decorate foods with metal, so maybe there is edible grade metal that could work as the leads.

can i eat it: grey pickled eggs

I made some pickled eggs for the first time. I just opened the jar, and: all of the eggs are varying shades of greyish- brownish. Most of them still have white spots and stripes. They smell fine (for hardboiled eggs soaked in vinegar I mean), but will I die if I eat them?

need a catchy phrase

My workplace, a public library, is planning to replace/ enhance the landscaping with ornamental, edible vegetables. We'll be donating the produce to the local food pantry as it comes available. What we need is a catchy promotional phrase to promote and advertise what we're doing. One early suggestion was "food, not flowers" but that's dry and sort of negative. So, give me your best, catchiest, inspired ideas!

Is it safe to eat this wild mushroom?

With all the rain we have had lately, there are a lot of mushrooms growing in the woods. I started reading about mushroom hunting and some mycologists claim that Chicken Mushrooms are reasonably safe to pick & eat. I recalled that there was an oak tree nearby that had been felled by Hurricane Irene, so I walk out to it and look. Sure enough, what I am fairly certain is a Laetiporus Sulphureus growing from the snapped trunk. [more inside]

Not-quite-Canadian Rockies edible plants: what's the best reference?

I'm going backpacking for a couple of weeks in the Beartooth mountains next summer. I'll be above the tree line most of the time. I'd like to have some local herbs and greens to make trail food more palatable. Is the flora described in Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Rockies going to be the right stuff for this trip? Is there another pack-reference which will better describe this biome? [more inside]

Edible Christmas Tree instructions for the city mouse?

After 10 years of living in NYC, I've fled to a wooded acre in rural New Jersey. I'm a total scrooge who would never be caught dead with a Christmas tree, but I want to edibly decorate an outdoor (living) pine tree to attract animals like deer, birds, squirrels and whoever else. I'm thinking along the lines of stringing popcorn, carrots, dried corn for the deer, peanut butter and birdseed on pinecones for the birds, maybe some apple slices, etc. The problem is, my years in the city have left me devoid of any common sense on how to proceed. I don't care much whether the tree is pretty or not - I'm more interested in having animals in my backyard than flashing lights that sing "Jingle Bell Rocks". [more inside]

Nutritious and Delicious??

Fake and edible indoor plants? For my Kittys... Does anyone even make such a thing? If not, what could I make it out of??
