I thought it was about time I wrote about this highly poisonous plant; Hemlock water dropwort (Oenanthe crocata). Any plant with 'hemlock' in its name is a fair sign to avoid it. While I normally write about wild, edible plants, sometimes it is good to know what NOT to eat.

In this blog you'll discover how to identify hemlock water dropwort, where it grows, why to avoid it, and a little about its uses too.

Gift wrapped, homemade, wild spiced candied almonds

A crunchy unrefined sugared snack complete with the delightful zing of hogweed seeds. Inspired by my talented friend and chef Fiona Were. Fiona created a delicious hogweed seed caramel for a group of foodie Americans whom I took foraging here in Cornwall. This recipe balances the carbohydrate of sugars with the protein of nuts and, in my experience, gives a definite lift to sluggish afternoons.

Hogweed seeds (Heracleum sphondylium) is a member of the umbellifer (carrot) family and must be identified correctly to avoid illness or death!
