Fruit and Nut Courses

The Autumn is when nature's harvest peaks. Our focus is wild fruit and nuts. There are many, diverse ways we can use and preserve the glut of wild food. These include desserts, jams / jellies / cheese, fruit leathers, chutneys, ketchups / sauces, vinegars, wines, syrups / cordials and liquors.

During the course we will identify edible and poisonous species and learn how they can be used and preserved. We will cover the law related to foraging, safety and sustainable foraging practices.
