Once you have your fire going, wouldn’t it be nice to have something you could cook over it? Mullein can help with that too. Although it’s illegal today, crushed mullein seeds have been used for centuries as an effective fish poison. The crushed seeds release saponins, glycosides, coumarin and rotenone into the water—all compounds that can stun fish and bring them to the surface. Used in a small body of water, it can bring up fish that are resistant to other forms of angling. Again, this is illegal and quite frankly unsportsmanlike, but in a dire emergency, do what you must. Just catch and gut the fish quickly to minimize the meat’s exposure to these toxins. Cook until well done.
