Wild Food Walk at Lanhydrock House Autumn 2009

This is at the end of a private wild food walk with friends, we were on the hunt for Fungi mainly and came back with dozens to identify and try, promptly fried up in the back of Justin's car.

Hi Richard,

Great to hear from someone young and interested in Bushcraft and Wild Foods :-) Hawthorn berries are edible, so are the leaves! The younger leaves (in Spring) will probably taste better. You can make Jam and other things out of the berries, they have been used over the ages in drinks and actually as a medicine.

If you have more questions about Wild Food's our Forum would be the best place to ask as more people will help you out with advice.

All the best,

Ashley Cawley.
