This wild spiced cake is so delicious that I serve it on all of my foraging walks…
Nettle soup is a forager’s classic. Rich, delicious and deeply nutritious. This recipe is wonderfully simple, but I suggest some extra wild options that make it even better.
Its a mistake to think nettles are only delicious as a super-nutritious savoury food. You can be naughty with them too. I highly recommend making syrups and cordials with them, to make quenching soft drinks in summer, or as a sophisticated addition to cocktails.
The blossoms and young leaves of flowering currant come right near the top of my early spring not-to-be-missed delicious list.
Of the very many delicious things you can do with wild garlic, this is possibly my favourite. Its a simple preparation but you can jazz it up with some wild aromatics in the pickling solution.
