Rosehips on a Kitchen Table. Seasonal Recipes For Foragers And Foodies

This informative little book is more than just a collection of recipes. The first section covers one of my favourite topics, foraged food. This is not a guide to foraging but has some wonderful classic and novel ideas of what to do with the seasonal wild food you can readily find throughout the UK. The book then turns to what to do with some of the fruit and veg you can easily grow yourself in your garden and goes on to great ideas to deal with ‘Gluts’ of fruit and veg that you inevitably find yourself with when you grow your own. The final part of the book,’What On Earth Do I Do With This’, covers rarely used ingredients and gives them a sumptuous new twist.

Informatively written with some beautiful photography, Rosehips on a Kitchen Table will inspire you to make use of the natural and cultivated resourses around you and help enhance your diet and delight the pallette.

    Over the last 10+ years I’ve moved toward being self sufficient, insofar as as growing fruit bearing trees and all manor of long lasting plants. Grape vines, apple trees, citrus of all kinds, ginger, oranges, and vegetables…of course. However I’m really growing things to dry and store as well as advanced genetic seeds which grow fast and yields a good amount. I’m still learning so any feed back or hints would be appreciated greatly. Thanking you in advance.

      Foraging can help you be self sufficient. It will add to your already great sounding array of plants. There is so much out there it’s difficult to recommend anything but common hogweed is not only delicious but provides a good amount of veg to add to your diet. Nettles provide almost everything you need so add those to your diet as well. If you use our online guide or have a one of our books, you will be able to forage for a surprising amount of good edibles.
