Early summer foraging - nettles, wild garlic, hawthorn and bramble


It's a great time of year for greens - for salads, soups and teas - so I've been out picking.



This is a really simple soup - wild garlic stalks (just the soft bits, chopped up) and nettle leaves, plus a little bit of pre-roasted butternut squash to thicken it and some veg stock. Simple, quick and tasty!



A tray of bramble (blackberry) and hawthorn leaf, drying for tea. I ended up mixing it with some wild water mint I picked and dried last year and it tastes delicious - fresh and light. Hawthorn is supposed to be great for regulating cholesterol and blood pressure. Bramble is good for sore throats, apparently.
