Valentine Foraging and Rosehip Chocolates

Here I share a deliciously wild and decadent chocolate recipe using foraged rosehips. Tart bites of red flesh in a rich, dark chocolate. I use fresh Rosa rugosa fruits for this recipe, but you could use rehydrated rosehip fruit leather. I first made this recipe for a Valentine's Day foraging course I led at Men-a-Tol. […]

A Forager's Dog - Paddy foraging Blackberries

I have a foraging dog. He's called Paddy McGinity (a name I inherited rather than gifted to him), and yes, he can climb rocks and cliffs as agile as a goat. Most of the time my dog is with me on forays, while I forage and teach up to 100 different species of wilds in […]

How to Make Wild Rose Water

I love roses, and of course they are also one of the many symbols of love. Here in the UK we have several wild varieties and the cultivated ones are, almost, infinite. After a hot, sunny day, I particularly love to be overcome by the scent of roses; the evening aroma of rose and other […]
