foraging

I think brambles must be one of the most extensively foraged berries in the UK. Even those who aren't serious wild food hunters and gathers seem to go brambling.
The smell of wild honeysuckle is intoxicating, especially at night when it is pollinated by night flying moths. However, although one can easily identify the smell, how do you describe the taste of honeysuckle - this was the question I was asked after making wild honeysuckle jelly.
On Saturday I cooked with some children in a small village hall for their Heather Festival up in the Glen of The Fairies (Glenshee).
There is much controversy over eating foraged mushrooms and you should certainly only forage with experience or help from someone who has it and carefully check your hoard when you return home.
