The Strawberry Tree: An Astonishing Seasonal Fruit You Never Knew Existed

Strutting its stuff on the catwalk this week is the Strawberry Tree.  This isn’t a magical tree that grows Strawberries in winter but it does grow edible fruit that ripens in November and December.

Champion Chestnuts: Forage and Roast Your Own With Our Quick and Easy Guide

Brace for the Turkey Nightmare before Christmas 2021.

t’s a bit of a cliche these days to say that Christmas comes earlier each year. In the Kitchen Table Revolution, we started preparing for yuletide festivities way back in January when we set aside a special jar of home-made marmalade. It continues throughout the year, having just bottled our stash of Sloe Gin and visited a pear tree (minus the partridge) to gather the main ingredients for this weekend's make; Rosehip and Pear Jelly (see recipe below). The perfect alternative to cranberry sauce to go with this year's Turkey.

Juniper 101; Terrific Tipsy Tales and Sozzled Stories.

Researching for this blog I opened a veritable Pandora's box of folklore.  Apparently juniper could be used for anything from Protecting your home from thieves and witches, treating burns and even a vaginal douche. Oh, and making Gin of course.

It is my job to distill the stories to the very spirit of what this seemingly powerful plant meant to our ancestors and indeed still means to many people today. This is no mean feat, as Juniper turns out to be one of the most widespread shrubs in the Northern Hemisphere, being found from the arctic tundra in the North, right to the edge of the tropics in the South, and everywhere in between.

Blessed be the Fruit? Blackberries and Beelzebub

A berry-laden blackberry bush is an iconic symbol of the end of summertime. It seems to soften the blow of autumn's ceaseless approach- a sweet treat gifted in commiseration for the return of dark, cold days.

Freedom to Forage: Why is Foraging a Race Issue?

On a sunny morning, you might catch me out in the Cornish fields, filling my basket with wild edibles. I feel connected to nature and blissfully happy as I weave my way along the coast paths, stopping to pick rock samphire and sea cabbage.  For me, foraging is a hobby, a fun day out. I […]
