2 that I'd want most:

Mongongo nuts which gives the most tocopherols for an amount of linoleic acid and constitutes about 28% of !Kung people's diet by weight:

Gac fruit which is probably the best source of most warm carotenoids:

Add those you'd like to have easy access to, and maybe we can also obtain some information about growing them from some members, hopefully...

and in regard to valuable foods:

- dandelion. Lots of nutrition, good for the liver and kidneys.

- seaberry. One of the three berries I know that is 1% vitamin C by dry weight. Another is an australian desert plum, and a third is camu camu in the Amazon. The latter is inedibly sour, and sea berry is pretty sour too but children like it and I like it too. Deep orange, is also rich in carotenoids and in rare Omega-7. Very abundant in nature but a bitch to harvest. Thorns are cactus like, and the berries are firmly attached to the plant.

- syderitis for mountain tea. Extremely abundant in its original range, honey sellers even sell syderitis honey.

Mushrooms have been an important herb all over Eurasia for millennia. My best guess is that they contain polysaccharides that benefit gut flora diversity. In short, they helped these poor vegan serfs with their many gut ailments. I noticed a sharp drop in garlic craving (also a major anti-inflammatory) since going gluten free.

I picked and froze 3 quarts of huckleberries (vaccinium parvifolium http://group-ethnographies.wikispaces.com/Quilete ) on Friday. Mostly red berries, with a few blues. Peak of the season on the WA coast.

I also picked up some maitake mushrooms at a farmer's market. Reputed medicinal benefits but I got them only to saute in butter.
