The most logical reason is that foods are at their taste-perfect best in their own time. How simple can it be? Even with our advanced trans- portation systems, why should we think that we have to "fast-food" any and all of these goodies, to eat any of them all of the time? Whatever happened to the saying "and each fruit to it's season? With such a vast variety of items to select from we shouldn't get stuck on one continu- ous plant family if we want to keep our systems in balance -- and that is what nurturing ourselves is all about. Pokeweed, phytolacca ameri- cana (phytolaccaceae), is an excel- lent spring tonic and green. It is one of those herbal plants we must be very careful with, Some times of the year it is too toxic for our systems to handle. Poke was highly used by American Indians and early 19th Century herbalists. Russian herbal- ists actually transplanted this botani- cal to areas around the Black Sea, the Caucasus and Crimea areas, to have the medicinal properties read- ily at hand. In the spring the early poke shoots are gathered, washed and boiled in two changes of water and eaten as a green vegetable of made into a tea for a spring tonic. Pokeweed has served a purpose in the history of medicine as an alter- native, emetic and cathartic. Many people still use poke in weak doses as a tonic or in combination with other herbs to treat arthritis, rheu- matism and connective problems with the throat and ear canals. Poke root has very powerful detoxifying effects and should be used with caution and in combination with other herbs to buffer its affect on the kidneys, lungs and spleen. Black Eider Bark, sambucus ca- nadensis, ebulus, nigra, or racemoss (caprifoliaceae), is not only a great alternative but a won- derful plant to know and recognize. Elder, in any form --- berries, buds, inner bark, leaves, flowers, roots and young shoots -- is noted for its medicinal and tasty qualities. Made into jams, jellies, syrups or tasty wines, elder serves as a cathartic, diaphoretic, diuretic, purgative and gentle stimulant. Used both inter- nally and externally, elder could be BUY A TRACTOR TODM AND PAY NO INTEREST UNTIL 1991 1 0% A.P.R. until Jan. 1, '91 on all new Deutz-Allis tractors (except 6150 model).
