#rumexcrispus

MOST RECENT

Fortunately I was able to dig up the roots I needed just in time before the snow and freeze arrived. Now I've got a fresh batch of Root Tonic brewing in cider vinegar to support immunity and provide readily available trace minerals over the winter. As all the energy and nutrients of the plants contract into their roots in the fall after a season of outward growth, root medicine is considered to be at its peak at this time of year.

One of the beauties from this week's yellow dock root harvest #mountaingrown #medicine #rumexcrispus #herbal

Our Culinary Botany students learn about yellow dock or curly dock (Rumex crispus) from @plantykim Kim Calhoun during our foraging class! #NCSU #NCState #NCSUethnobotany #Rumexcrispus #Polygonaceae #culinarybotany #culinarybotanyclass #plantbiology #botany #culinarybotany #wildfood #foraging #plantlife #plantpeople #plantsandpeople

Yellow Dock, also called Curly Dock for its wavy leaves (Rumex Crispus). This plants roots is what mainly used for its gastrointestinal benefits as well as the young leaves are edible, delicious and packed with nutrients! Back in the days people used to forage and make flour out of the seeds, and it's not that weird, because Yellow Dock is a distant relative to Buckwheat. Think about it as a wild buckwheat.
Yellow dock seeds are abandoned in the fall, and it's actually best to use them rather than let them seed the area for the next season. And not just the next season - yellow dock seeds are viable in the ground for up to 80 years! The plant is very aggressive and very hard to pull from the ground. I let them grow in my garden, because it's easier to pull them out in the fall to harvest the medicinal roots, as the garden soil is airy and fluffy compared to the wild open fields. But I never let the yellow dock go into seeds in my garden, it's enough as it is of them there.
You can forage, dry and grind the seeds to add to your backing or in your spice blends. Or use the seeds to grow your winter sprouts and microgreens! It can be difficult to separate the seeds from the chuff, so just skip that step and leave it with. I believe in simplicity and if something is not coming off then may be it isn't supposed to.

I'm still enjoying Curly Dock greens! Some of them I found in the field are certainly trying to overwinter and won't bloom until next spring! #rumexcrispus #ediblewildplants #forageforlife

It’s a beautiful day to be wildcrafting. #ancestreeherbals #wildcrafting #rumexcrispus #fall

A beautiful bed of yellow dock, the leaves turn lovely colors in the fall, and taste the least bitter in the spring and fall post frost.

One of my fall favorites: Rumex crispus follows me from yarden to yarden. There were four this fall but next year I know there will be more. I let it seed. I love this plant. Yellowdock root is a staple in my herbal pantry. Not only a great root to help strengthen the liver for winter, it helps with digestive functioning during the change in seasons. #rumexcrispus #yellowdock #yellowdockroot #livertonic #fallroots #digestivecare #yarden #localremedies #backyardremedies

Yellow dock Also known as curly dock or Rumex crispus, this common weed has many important virtues. Herbalists regularly work with yellow dock to address skin issues, promote healthy digestion, increase iron levels and more.

Time to get in touch with the roots.... gathering yellow dock, Rumex crispus, dandelion, burdock and marshmallow root. I made a nutrient rich iron syrup with yellow dock root, nettles, grape and black currant juice and molasses . Yellow dock is not only high in iron, it also is helpful for bowel regulation, liver function , cholesterol, and inflammation. I’m drying some grated root to use in my cooking much like using turmeric. #yellowdock #rumexcrispus #getintouchwiththeroots #rootcausemedicine #ironsyrup #naturalmedicine #wildcraftedmedicine

Dear #curlydock , of course you present your magnificent, all too familiar wavy, thick and curled leaves... boisterous #stalk of tiny, clustered flowers and brown seeds...just as I think to myself that I wish I had brought my trusty tinctures and herbs with me from LA to aid in some recent ails...you present yourself and remind me that #natureprovides .. you remind me that everything I need...is. right. Here.. you remind me that I have the power to bee resourceful and tune into what my body and spirit are telling me. You are mirroring exuberance amidst a field of strawberries and chrystanthemum, hairy vetch and cabbage. You present your medicine in many forms, and for that, I consider you my ally, my friend. I love you, #rumexcrispus !

A field full of Dock around the corner from my house. I first discovered this plant when I moved out to The Delta and was first experimenting with natural dyes. When I would drive by them in late summer/early autumn, I was struck by their deep plum, brown color. I asked my sister who this was, and she told me Curly Dock. (@brodeurgardening) I also love it’s Latin name, Rumex Crispus-because it’s super crispy when it dries out! Turns out it creates beautiful shades of golden brown. I know it’s an ancient art that I’m just now discovering over here, so I’m honoring all who have come before and happy I get to be a part of it. #rumexcrispus #sacramentoriverdelta #isleton

Tried digging up what I thought was a long Rumex crispus root only to break a short one. #yellowdock #curlydock #yellowdockroot #rumexcrispus #herbharvest #yarden

I have been stocking up on my winter root tonics before the ground gets too cold. Fall or early spring are the best times for this work as all the energy is concentrated in the root. ⠀⠀
Making a herbal tonic is a simple process. Basically it’s harvesting, washing, chopping and then submerging the roots in raw apple cider vinegar. The vinegar helps to extract the healing qualities of the roots, and has healing properties of its own. ⠀⠀
I have been focusing on digging three powerful roots. Dandelion, burdock and yellow dock (pictured here). Amongst other things, these three are all excellent support for our liver and digestive system. ⠀⠀
Dandelion and burdock also contain good amounts of inulin which is a prebiotic fibre that helps stimulate the growth of good gut bacteria. And we all know that a happy gut makes for a healthy body. 😊 ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

Making a blood building iron rich syrup for this months @toothofthelion CSA share. Inspired by @sister_spinster s recipe in the many moons book it has fresh burdock root , yellow dock root, nettle leaf, elderberries , fennel seed and moooore! Later I’ll add Raw apple cider vinegar and red clover for a mineral boost. Stoked about it. #rumexcrispus #articumlappa #molasses #sambucusnigra #urticadioica #ironrich #bloodbuilding #lifegiving

Fall foraging can be bittersweet.... it seems everything beautiful and ‘productive’ in nature but that is the contrary. As the plants and trees let go of their leaves and pull their energy deep into their roots lets embody this wisdom by letting go that which doesn’t serve us and nourish our roots. I was feeling sad today that I had no joiners for my plant walk but got some good lessons from Mother Nature today and gathered roots and nuts and am making my burdock, yellow dock and dandelion cordial, recipe will soon be released in the fall issue of @make_minnesota #nourishyourroots #retreattoyourroot #autumnmusings #letitgo #rootmedicine #herbalcordial #burdockcordial #burdockroot #arctiumlappa #rumexcrispus #taraxacumofficinale
