Common sorrel (Rumex acetosa) is a wonderful wild food to gather from fields and hedgerows. It has a lemony tang which is great with fish, dairy products and in salad.

Here I describe a little of its characteristics and uses. You can find sorrel in my Wild Food Foraging book, including;

  • Photos of it in different seasons
  • Step by step recipes with photos
  • ID tips
  • Cautions
  • Nutritional benefits

Sorrel is one of the plants I cover in my foraging courses, which is a fantastic way to learn about foraging through hands on experience with a professional guide.

Homemade, foraged biscuits with violets

I've had such fun experimenting with edible violets! Their colour and aroma are a delight, if not a little elusive to pin down! So I thought I'd share my best Dozen Recipes for using Violets for sweet and savoury, complete with notes on colour and flavour.

Most of the recipes I share here use sweet violets, though some are suitable for other wild violets. Check my my Wild Food: Violets post to find out more.
