  • Today's board from my Wild Spring Greens & Edible Blooms workshop at the wonderful @smallworldtheatre in Cardigan. So many wild plants they didn't all fit on the board. 
I love Spring!

  • Japanese knotweed aka wild rhubarb (a name I much prefer, thanks @edible.leeds )
Not a loved garden plant but a rather tasty edible, similar to rhubarb. It's pretty delicious as a couli mixed with strawberries,
this lot will be heading for gin and enjoyed in a few months time.
 The main thing to watch out for when picking it is that the ground where it grows hasn't been treated with weed killer!
And be super careful when disposing of any bits you don't use- I incinerate mine in my wood burner to make sure I don't spread this super invasive plant 🌱🌱🌱

  • Monarda didyma (Bee Balm) returns to the yarden with a vengeance. I love the Monardas, a native mint family genus with powerful aromatic and seasoning qualities. While M. didyma is usually grown here in gardens, M. fistulosa (usually referred to as wild bergamot) is a common meadow native. Both have incredible promise as culinary herbs- I envision a future in which New Jersey pizzerias use dried wild bergamot leaves in place of poxy freeze-dried oregano flakes. Not just because it is “local” or “sustainable” or “cool” but because the flavor of wild bergamot knocks your balls into the back of your head. Bee balm / M. didyma is likewise amazing. Ever dry basil? Tastes like nothing. Dried bee balm? Tastes like basil. By which I dont mean dried nothing. Explore alternatives, there is a world of native and invasive spices and herbs that will astonish your tastebuds and replace dull flavorless truck-delivered lame default seasonings.

  • Barberry - berberis glaucocarpa
A native to the western himalayas barberry has many traditional uses. It has been planted in a lot of places as a hedgerow to contain stock, the root bark contains an alkaloid called berberine which has medicinal uses. The bark is also very high in tannins and is an excellent yellow dye. The fruit are really sour and can be made into a condiment that goes well with chicken. Glaucocarpa translates in Latin to fruit with a bloom, this can be used to make an easy starter for fermented drinks and sourdough

  • 𝘾𝙤𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙨𝙢𝙖 𝙘𝙤𝙡𝙚𝙣𝙨𝙤𝙞
Juicy edible red berries adorn this species of coprosma, slightly bitter from the high tannin content in this plant family. I found this one growing on the forest edge at around 400m above sea level.

  • This is what cooking in a camper looks like, its messy, cluttered and full of stacked bowls and appliances. Our table becomes our counter, since theirs virtually no counter built into this! (who designed this thing? Perhaps they had cooking as a novelty in mind.) 🍃⁣

We've been living in a camper for 3 years straight, cant say I've perfected the art of managing a small space but theirs certainly a learning curve... full of many many frustrating moments. ⁣

Huxley helped me make Wild Pesto Rolls full of raw milk, grass fed butter, fresh eggs, and wild greens today 🌿💖

  • Urtica Dioica: nettles. They have been calling to me for two weeks, reminding me that they have the medicine I need to recover from the flu that took me down three weeks ago. I knew they must be around here somewhere, but it’s been so rainy and I’ve been so tired and unwell, I didn’t bother to go looking for them. Turns out they are literally in my backyard, right outside my bedroom window. I went out in the rain to pick them today. I picked until I got stung on the wrist and the bum. And then I made some miso soup with nettles and oyster mushrooms, which is delicious and feels right as rain for me to eat tonight. #nettles #foraging #landstewardship #urticadioica #huntandgather #wildgreens #nettlesoup #wildfood

  • Scotch thistle - 𝙤𝙣𝙤𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙙𝙪𝙢 𝙖𝙘𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙪𝙢
A biennial thistle usually found on farmland and forest clearings where ruminant animals have been defacating. It is a good indicator of high nitrates in the soil. The flowers leaves and stems are all edible, you can scrape off the spines and steam them. Even raw they taste okay.

  • Miro - 𝙥𝙧𝙪𝙢𝙣𝙤𝙥𝙞𝙩𝙮𝙨 𝙛𝙚𝙧𝙧𝙪𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙖
A large canopy layer podocarp found throughout New Zealand. The fruit is more like a drupe with a flesh that tastes like a piney mango. Similar species in South America are used to make marmalade. A traditional Maori recipe is to use them as stuffing inside wood pigeon, a tradition that unfortunately died out when Europeans cleared the forests and greatly reduced the pigeon population.

✨ HOW TO PICK THE PERFECT AVOCADO 🥑 .
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is nothing more gratifying than slicing open a beautifully ripe avocado. But sometimes, the color or firmness are not always the best guide. So, what should the avocado-obsessed do?!
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PEEL BACK THE STEM at the top of the avocado. If it comes off easily and you find green underneath, it’s ready to eat! 😋

  • There are very few things that bring me more happiness than picking a jar of violets on a beautiful spring day with my kids. They’re beautiful, they’re free and abundant, and they are healing. They help get the lymph moving after all the sluggish winter days and heavy foods and they help us to open our hearts again to the warmth and sweetness of spring. Violets also moisten and nourish tissues both internally and externally. I’ll dry these for salves, creams and teas and I’m hoping to make some violet syrup to stir into fun summer drinks and desserts. And to think people pay money to spray these out of their lawns?!?! (Confession: I was one of those people not that long ago!) Can your grass do all that ☝🏻? It turns out that if we stop spraying poison on our earth, it responds with beauty and healing. What grace!
More confessions: I have a thousand things I need to do, my house is a disaster, my kids are filthy, dinner is not made, my husband has been out of town all week and my throat is super sore 😩. But violet season is so short! I’m trying to set aside some time to be present with my family or alone in nature each day. I hope you can too! There are so many gifts to receive!

  • Nīkau palm -  𝙍𝙝𝙤𝙥𝙖𝙡𝙤𝙨𝙩𝙮𝙡𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙖𝙥𝙞𝙙𝙖
Common in coastal forest around New Zealand. Nīkau is a Maori name and translates to mean barren coconut. The immature flower bracts are edible as well as the tender growing tip. It tastes similar to parsnip I reckon.

  • When your friends know all the secret spots up into the mountain, off the path and up a smaller waterfall. It was mildly amusing when the expat Americans told us we were walking up the "wrong road" and there was no waterfall where we were headed. Instead of rolling our eyes we just politely said we had promised to meet a friend up further, and that he could expect us to walk back dejectedly. Joke's on him though! We had a blast in the water holes that "didn't exist"

Exploration at its finest. Dont even get me started on how we washed our hair with fauna picked up from beside the path, the shrimp caught in Tshirts in the streams, and the local berries shoved into hungry, greedy little mouths.

  • Hi - thanks to everyone who helped me ID this awhile back (@plslala & @forgottenfruits I think)! Trapa natans aka bull nut aka water caltrop aka water chestnut 🌰 + many other common names. It was supposedly brought to Harvard’s botanical gardens in the late 1800’s and has since become a highly invasive & problematic plant in the Northeast. They can accumulate heavy metals and host parasitic flukes depending on water quality / cooking method, so I haven’t tried one yet. I love running into mystifying, alien forms in nature. I thought these were egg sacs at first 🐉🥚🦈

  • Be careful while foraging. You might mistake false morels for the real morels. This is a false morel. In its habitat, not next to real ones, it could almost seem like  a morel. But it's very different! And not edible (yes, I know some people eat them but why risk it, ya know). So take care and have fun! #falsemorel #morel #morelmushrooms #wildfood #foraging #myhabitat #mushrooms

  • Be still my heart! Can it be? Oh, it be, alright 😍 The first thing I spotted at the Farmers Market here were freshly harvested ramps. These wild onions are one of the few seasonal foods you really can only get in season, and they only grow wild. I haven't had any for years, so it was officially a thrill to find them!
♡
If you happen to come across any at your Farmers Market take them home, and ask if they will be more next week. You'll want them!
♡
They will need a good wash, but then Just a kiss of heat in the pan. I mixed mine with a few other fresh greens. Recipe to follow.

  • Winter came, winter went.  We survived the White Walkers, and spring has finally begun to reward us for our resilience.  First offerings: stinging nettles and rhubarb, pictured in this brand-spanking new dessert.  Rhubarb crumble (rhubarb poached in Westholme green tea @westholme_teafarm ginger-oat crumble, minty nettle ice cream). Available from now until Mother Nature gives us some strawberries to work with!!

  • If you can keep your head, when all about you
Are losing theirs, and blaming it on you;
—
Spring makes many into fools, a hunt for glory and a maddened desire after the long winter. Even now, when most of these fools have spent the winter eating out of season produce, and dining off the supermarket rather than their pantry, they take spring as their license to run ramp(ant) in the woods. —
Not for me. I snip a few leaves (these all came from pairs) and savor something special, but I will not dig. I will likewise not spend hours looking for elusive morels so I can brag and post and post and brag. There is so much going on in the world of wild food right now and it is VASTLY more interesting than the flavor of either ramps or morels. I will spend all my springs remaining deciphering the bewildering array of edible flowers, capturing the scent of norway maple and weeping cherry, digging the root of mustards and dandelions, always trying to preserve the ephemeral constantly changing tastes of mugwort and monarda, and catching all the moments i can.
—
Fuck you and your heavy hitters. Fuck an influencer, fuck big hauls, fuck whole foods, fuck wild food hobbyists that rape the land when occasion suits them and ignore the sustainable foods. Fuck your bulbs. Eat invasives, treasure natives, worship nature, and work actively to change the relationship of human beings and their environment. Anything else is wasting my time. I dont have enough time to waste on bullshit. This is what I do. It isnt a hobby. It isnt trendy or novel. Its my life. Dont waste my time and I wont waste yours. Thats a promise.

  • I’m pretty excited to host my first Eatwild! Meet up tomorrow night. I hope to meet some interesting people who love foraging around in the undergrowth, digging in wet sand and getting stung all over by nettles. So fun!! Wanna come?! Send me a message for details and let’s learn, stay safe and get muddy.

If you're interested in learning about what herbal medicine can do for you I suggest you give him a shout. I'm really looking forward to learning more about the medicinal properties of the flora that grows all around us.
*
 I'm currently healing after a period of not looking after myself very well. - make sure you look after number one guys. Don't be like me. *
Have a great Easter weekend. *
Drink lots of water!
