Hedgerow Harvest

Hedgerow Harvest

Every year hedgerows around Eco-Gites of Lenault provide rich pickings for those who know where to look. From the first wild garlic leaves in early Spring to elderflowers, dandelions, blackberries, rosehips, sloes etc there is plenty to forage for during much of the year. This year I even found a wild medlar tree although annoyingly all but a handful of the fruits were just out of reach. (Note to self - go with stick to hook down branches next year). Dandelion jam, wild garlic and leek risotto, rosehip syrup, hedgerow jelly are just some of the preserves and meals we have, thanks to our hedgerow harvest.
