Winter food resources: Crabapple

Crabapple branch. Covered in frost, but still perfectly edible.

Pic taken in Bismarck; there are more food resources than you might think (for people and animals) out there in the winter, even in cities.

I have not researched this myself, but I heard from Prof. Linda Black Elk that certain kinds of crabapples are native to North America. I’m not sure if this is one of them. Fun fact, though: apples and crabapples are close relatives of uŋžíŋžiŋtka (roses, both wild and domestic).
