Food Foraging - Going Wild

 

 Wild Food Foraging in Ireland with Mary Bulfin at Crann Og Eco Farm.  A charming group of folk joined us for a very interesting and informative day out. Mary led the group from all walks of life through the farm and woods to forage for edible wild plants and fruits.

What a feast! We learned about mushrooms, big ones, tiny ones, tasty ones and poisonous ones… Looking in the hedgerows, wandering over the fields of Crann Og Eco Farm we found many weeds that turned out to be tasty and medicinal as well!

There were plenty of wild berries and plums to pick and eat, especially blackberries, so many blackberries! We also learned about the health benefits of nettle seeds, they are rich in minerals, great for skin and hair, as well as the kidneys and urinary system.

Yes, eating weeds is definitely possible and probably the most sustainable way to get rid of them – or at least use them! Eat them in salads, pestos, soups, bake them into bread and cookies or make tea out of them.  Remember…they are actually Wild Foods!

But before you go out, remember to inform yourself about edible plants in your region, read books or better – attend a course!

The next Wild Food Day in late autumn will be on October 22nd. Starts at 10am and finishes around 4pm. Mushroom hunting, making preserves and much more!
