Kawartha Lakes Cottage Treat - Naan with Wild Edibles
We were recently invited to spend a few days at Long Beach Cottages and Trailer Park. to our delight, we discovered that Johnny and Sarah do not use any pesticides at the resort, which means the wild vegetation is safe to use in recipes. Here is a delicious recipe we create with a touch of the wild vegetation near the 3-Bedroom Cottage we enjoyed while at Long Beach Cottages and Trailer Resort.
 Do you have a delicious recipe you might suggest to us using some of these wild ingredients?
