Appendix VI – Foraging Talk by Forage Fine Foods

If you want to listen to a talk on foraging and get some ideas about flavour combinations that you can put together from your foraging harvests, then Hay Deli at 4:00 o’clock this afternoon, 1st. November, is the place to be.

The lady who runs Forage Fine Foods (www.foragefinefoods.co.uk) is finishing up her tasting session in Hay Deli with the talk at 4:00 pm. And can I tell you, her products taste fantastic!

I don’t eat ketchup, because I don’t eat tomatoes anymore on account of following the blood type diet and tomatoes are on the no-no list for my blood group, but her tomato-free Hawberry Ketchup means that I can once again enjoy that delectable staple that is found on most people’s condiment racks. I had a little taste of it and it was – Mmm Mmm Mmmmmm! To die for! I’m sure it would go great on a slice of toasted sourdough bread.

And her Rosehip and Horseradish Dipping Sauce – superb! Wait, that’s a non-verb really, isn’t it?. . .  All I know is that mixtures of sweet and tangy and deliciousness are all of what’s in those little bottles. A bit pricey, mind you, but well worth it if you want to treat yourself.

Tired though I am, I’ll be taking a seat there at 4:00 pm sharp! See you there!


Liz’s talk was excellent. She gave a general overview of many of the plants around us that are useful but that we neglect, often out of ignorance. I think the best option would be to join her on one of her foraging trips to get a real feel for what’s out there to be picked and used. You’ll have to wait till Spring, though, because I think we can safely say we are definitely coming into winter now. So get in touch with her if it sounds like something you’d like to do.
