Wild Food Morning

Monday, June 6th 2011

Dandelion, Sorrel, Hawthorn, Chickweed, Burdock, Daisy and Clover were some of the ingredients gathered to make a colourful salad on today's Wild Food guided walk. People came from as far away as Hull to learn about some of the culinary delights that can be found in the wild.

Foraging on the moorland

Marion demonstrated how to collect Nettles without getting stung but nobody volunteered to help!

The foragers then retired to the Field Centre to sample several different wild food recipes. Marion's Chickweed scones and Dandelion honey, Sophie's Nettle soup and Elizabeth's roast Pheasant were enjoyed by all.

Well, with one exception…
