We very much enjoyed the autumn foraging event. 30 people braved the wet weather to pick sloes, wild pears, blackberries, hawthorn berries, rose hips, rowan berries, crab apples and yarrow in our guided foraging tour around Hilperton. Back at the Hilperton village hall Matt and Jack from the Ethicurian improvised a wild berry syrup and Jack demonstrated The Bramble & Co cocktail amongst other treats. The recipe is on his Guardian page here.
