Thanks to the folk that came on our summer foraging course over the weekend. The session included:
- Seashore plants
- A countryside foraging walk along hedgerows, through fields and beside (and in) a river.
- Cooking and eating a three course wild food-based lunch
In the harbour we used drop nets to try and catch Shore Crabs. They were however a bit thin on the ground. It was a real surprise when one of the drop nets was hauled up to find this magnificent Eel. They are great eating and I remember catching one while fishing as a child and taking it home to eat. Today they are however critically endangered and it was put back. I am looking forward to seeing the video footage on Ashley’s Kitchen.
