The Hedgerow Cookbook (NT)
Cooking with foraged food
It’s free, it’s fun and it’s very tasty! Harvesting your own produce from the hedgerows, meadows and woods rather than just ordering food online from the supermarket is all the rage with both towndwellers and countryfolk. 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 across the country.
Explore the deliciously different flavours of wild food, from bilberries and nettles to hazelnuts and damsons – all of which are free for the picking. Learn how to use a range of wild foods creatively in over 100 easy recipes, ranging from jams, jellies and chutneys to starters, main courses, cakes, puds, cocktails and cordials.
With chapters on Flowers & Hips, Leaves, Berries, Fruit with Stones, Fruit with Pips and Nuts, why not treat yourself to fruit leather, cheese, rose petal syrup or a wickedly alcoholic drink?
