Reason 113: you can pick your own wild greens and cook a healthy, yummy meal
This particular reason for living on Brač would probably make my top ten on any given day. What you need here is a plastic bag (Konzum, Tommy, Kerum, Studenac… any of these will do ;)), a handy knife, knowing where to look and which plants are edible. The latter two I’m not good at yet, so for now I just go with Aunt Nada and follow her lead. Once you’ve got a bag full, you can go home and clean it before cooking. Cooking is simple. Just boil the water, add some salt and don’t cook for too long. You can also add potatoes, and if you don’t have a lot of mišanca, add any other greens you can buy or grow, such as blitva (chard). Blitva and potatoes will also soften the otherwise strong flavor of concentrated mišanca, if that’s prefereable.
Some of the plants that go into mišanca: žutinica, kostrič, radič, divlji luk, koromač, martaduha.
There is a guidebook on Brač wild plants which can help you identify the mišanca plants. Read about the guidebook here.
