We had a great first foraging course with expert Jon Tyler as part of our Suffolk Smallholders Society programme of events.
We had a great Sunday morning walk round a local forest whilst finding and tasting local foraging items including Birch Sap, Beech leaves and watercress. Additionally, we had a fantastic session at the end of the day with cooking and trying the produce we had collected in our wicker baskets during the walk.
We prepared and ate/drank the following:
-Blanched Ransomes with butter and lemon
-Nettle and Wild Garlic Pesto with crackers
-Pine and Nettle Tea
Overall, we had a grand time and each want to try all our new ideas out at home! On my list of things to add to the smallholding is another decent foraging guide to assist me when I head out to find small quantities of foraged goods. Can’t wait! We will be holding more foraging courses during the year so it would be lovely to see more members!
