Seasonal Tips from Mark
Honey Fungus - Identification, Edibility, Distribution, Ecological RoleOne of the UK's most common mushrooms, honey fungus suffers from a bad reputation because it is a virulent parasite of trees, but I admire it as a remarkable and ecologically important organism that also happens to be super-abundant and delicious.
Hen of the Woods - Identification, Edibility, Distribution, Medicinal Uses, Ecology, Sustainable HarvestingOne of the most beautiful, delicious, healthy wild mushrooms you can find - the "big game hunting" of fungi foraging!
Sea Buckthorn - Identification, Edibility, Distribution, Ecology, RecipesThis is the most striking and delicious of all our UK berries in my opinion - once you get over their nose-scrunching acidity! They are exceptionally good for you, being rammed with antioxidants and vitamin C. They are mostly found coastally, but are starting to be introduced - or introducing themselves - to more inland locations...
Super Simple Wild Fruit LeathersFruit leathers are simple. You can throw in whatever mixture of hedgerow fruits you come home with, and no need to weigh or time anything. All you need is fruit and sugar or honey to taste to make a delicious, healthy, long-lasting treat that will cheer up any walk or forage with an intense fruit hit.
