Who knows what plant this ink is made from and it's significance?
Red dye No. 40 plant?
Don't know the name of it, but it grew wild where I grew up. My friends and I used to juice the berries and make cave drawings in the barn.
Significance? Not sure, but it's a damn effective laxative.
It does grow wild all over north America.
Works well as a dye and ink.
Ingesting it is not recommended.
I'll wait a bit more before I give any clues.
What's the significance?
Since you got the plant I'll give you a hint.
Everyone on the forum should be familiar with the document.
Tell me it was used to write the declaration or constitution. That would be pretty amazing.
I be damned. Such a humble plant too. A nuisance, really.
Plentiful and useful.
The plant is also edible but you have to know how to cook it and you have to know which parts or it's toxic. Polk salad used to be really popular, but don't even think about eating it unless you know what you are doing.
Yeah it's one of those plants where I just tell everyone it is poisonous. It's easier that way. Lol
Yea, I was thinking I should have just left that alone right after I posted it.
Maybe, Mountain alder (Alnus incana) or Chokecherry?
Both questions have been answered.
Ink used for the declaration.
That's a pretty awesome fact! I'm going to start using that fun fact now.
I'm full of useless information. When I can remember it. Lol
I love useless little facts, because they can be very useful.
