New to foraging and have questions about making capsules for health?

So I didn't quite realise just how many health benefits there are from taking milk thistle, dandelion and nettles. Well this time of year there everywhere and I wanted to start foraging these 3 plants and either making tea or capsules from them, I already have everything to make capsules so was gonna try that out. How would I go about harvesting these plants to make them into capsules? What part of the plants should I take? Googles not giving me the answers I need for some of them. Mainly the milk thistle and dandelion I'm curious about, do I just use the seeds from milk thistle and grind them?

Wild chives

First of all, do you think these are true wild chives or just garden escapees? I found them on the bank of a large river in central Maine. There are no properties nearby. No properties upstream on the river for at least a mile.

Second, anyone like cooking with them? Any fun recipes I should try? I’d love to preserve them somehow… maybe in an oil?

Linden Uses

It's linden time where I'm at and I'm drying a bunch for tea, I might make an infused honey or syrup, might scent some sugar (like making vanilla sugar), and might make a fermented beverage with them (Alexis Nicole makes a floral beverage with flowers, sugar, lemon, lemon zest, and apple cider vinegar fermented for 3 days).

Any other ideas?

Are the silkworms In mulberries dangerous to eat?

Just foraged about 3 cups of mulberries, blended them into a paste, heated the paste until it bubbled, and added sugar and pectin. After I did so, I read the silkworms in the mulberries may be poisonous to consume. (But can be removed by soaking the berries in saltwater for an hour). Which I did not do.

Is my jam safe to eat?
