Looking for food in the woods? It's time to forage

"Rock and I often take our boat to Bayou Teche in search of the American lotus during the summer. In south Louisiana, the plant is also known as 'graine a voler.' Loosely translated, the Cajun French term (pronounced grah-NUH VOH-lay) means 'seeds that fly' or 'seeds in the air,' because when the seed pods are left to wither, the husk retracts and pressures the seeds to pop out."
