Hello my name is Lilly and I am making videos about primitive living skills, survival, bushcraft, camping gear and prepping. I consider myself being a modern hunter-gatherer who wants to live as close as possible with mother nature and right now I am in the process of learning how to live off the land and thrive in the wilderness. Thanks for watching ~ Survival Lilly

  1. Good food source. In Florida, we cut out the heart of palm trees also. It's great!

  2. I got curious, but never did find Sundqvist's comments!

  3. Great video! Easy to remember cattail.

  4. you would be much better off at home in the kitchen where a woman belongs. instead of trying to act like a man, someday you'll get in trouble and a man is going to have to save your ass!

  5. Daxy no eat cattail!! Daxy want boar chops!!!!

  6. you are great making fire. I like wild foods especially berries and grapes. purslane is an edible weed that grows everywhere

  7. The knife at 2:07 looks awesome, what brand/model is that ? Thanks

    I've always thought cattail did not grow here in the UK, until I found out that it was just the American name for 'bulrush' all along XD

  9. Nice one SL (also about the Burdock). Another ggod way to cook it is to bury the roots in the hot coals to cook because the outer part of the root (as you said) can be removed to eat the inner part of the root (which is soft and delicious).
    Good stuff and thanks!

  10. Everytime when I see cattail when I go places i feel like trying it but I don't have a nife or shovel to dig them out I tired to pull on it an the leaves ripped

  11. I will have to try this. I did not realize how many different things you can eat. Thanks for the videos

  12. Great video! I'll be in the woods in 2 weeks, and eager to taste some cattail myself.

    Great video! My family and I love the great outdoors. I love to eat what Mother Nature provides us :)

  15. awesome instructional video!

  16. What a neat video. I always wanted to see these things actually cooked and eaten. Now you have proved it! Have been watching your videos for the last year or so and have learned a lot from your knowledge and hands on approach to everything you show us. You do inspire me to keep up with outdoor learning tips! Thank you from Florida, USA. gigi

  17. hmmm… Maybe if you had left the roots a bit more on fire they could dehidrate completely? Good for long term storaging and maybe they could get grind down to flower for making some sort of pourage 🙂 just a crazy idea…

  18. I remember getting funny looks the last time I told someone you could eat cattail.
