Linden

- Food Along The Way -

A few days back a couple of friends got inspired by Philippe Gérard. They told me you could eat the leaves of the linden tree and that it serves well as a bulk for salad. I stumbled upon many during my first trip. One tree had particular sweet leaves. Almost like there was a little sugar coating on. Were it not ants that go for lice bum sucking? Could it be the excretion of the lice that make for a sweet thin layer on the leaves? Is that too​ far fetched? But if so, I love lice! They sure top of the flavour.
