Goji are a blood cleansing, nutrative superfood that have gained a popularity recently in the Western health world. Traditional chinese medicine (TCM) has been using them for centuries.
In TCM they are used as a cooling Yin tonic - perfect for overworked New Yorkers like myself. I eat them in my oatmeal in the morning, dried. Fresh goji taste like tomato, slightly sweet and bland.
I also brought back ocotillo, creosote, and sagebrush from the desert. Stay tuned for more on those plants!
