Another resource:  Hodgson, Wendy, Food Plants of the Sonoran Desert, University of Arizona Press, 2001.

Along with that, I was wondering if you can make flour out of dry Ironwood tree pods and Palo Verde tree pods?

Not trying to steer you away from this site, but here's info already published on the web:

I'm not sure where to find the nutritional info, like what you'd see on a nutrition label… all I've seen are some anecdotal comments like 'high in protein', low glycemic, etc… I would be interested as well. Additionally, if anyone has seen any nutrition info on the decorative sweet potato greens varieties vs the traditional, please share.

I would post this question to the Native Foods group on this site - lots of knowledge there:  http://www.phoenixpermaculture.org/group/nativefoods
