Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A guide to gathering edible plants in the wild and using them creatively in many different recipes—jams, jellies, relishes, baking, fruit cordials and liqueurs, and more

Seasonal, local and wild foods—they're free, fun, and very tasty! Harvesting produce from the hedgerows, meadows, and woods rather than just visiting the supermarket is rewarding and economical. The joy of turning nature's bounty into delicious produce to enjoy with the family or to use to make a lovely gift is being rediscovered in kitchens of today. This book demonstrates how easy it is to use one's "harvest" in lots of different ways. Those who are fed up with just making jam can try fruit leather, cheese, rose petal syrup, or a wickedly alcoholic drink instead. The book covers flowers and hips (elderflowers, dandelions, and roses); berries (blackberries, elderberries, bilberries, wild raspberries, wild strawberries, rowan berries, and berry mixtures); fruit with stones (wild plums and damsons, sloes, wild cherries); fruit with pips (crab apples, quinces, medlars); nuts (hazelnuts, chestnuts, walnuts); and leaves (wild garlic, sorrel, nettles, samphire, dandelions, and other saladings). This very practical book covers 100 recipes, both sweet and savory, as well as tips on gathering, seasonal guidance and the law, and common sense. Includes dual measures.
