NOVEMBER FORAGE


Oak moss is a fungus that looks like a lichen and is found growing on tees, walls and other surfaces. It doesn't have a lot of flavour but it's very but it's very beautiful added to a plate. Deep fried and dusted with a smoked cep and dried laver salt, it's a great garnish.





Rose hips are ripening. They make a great syrup which can be used to flavour a range of dishes or be used to ease coughing caused by the onset of seasonal sniffles.




Haws are ripe and plump. The fruit from the hawthorn has a lovely fresh mango like colour and if cooked and puréed with a bit of spice and seasoning, it makes a delicious ketchup.
