The essential guide to wild foods and using natural materials at home.
'The exciting thing about this book is the number of unusual flavours and species it highlights... This inspiring resource comes at the perfect time,' Andrew Fairlie, Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles
From experts at the Scottish Wild Harvests Association, together with the team who brought us Handbook of Scotland's Trees, comes this indispensable guide to sustainable, responsible harvesting and use of our natural bounty, from its most trusted custodians.
This inspirational guide is packed with invaluable know-how on Scotland’s wild harvest, covering what, where, when and how you can use your bounty in sustainable ways – from the most useful and widespread of species to the less well-known, and from leaves and berries to saps, seeds, seaweeds, mosses and wood. Learn how to begin or extend a repertoire of wild foods and materials that can be used as dyes, remedies and around the home. Complete with recipes (from nettle haggis to elderflower cordial) and practical advice on home and garden uses.
An app for mobiles and iPads will follow later in 2012. Watch this space for details.
