Foraging is such a rewarding activity! Aurore is constantly learning about the plants and wildlife on the croft and around it. But foraging isn’t only about knowing: it’s about processing too! We never collect more than we can process (that’s something one learns the hard way!) and we learn the simplest, tastiest way of processing what we find.
We are very fortunate to live near the sea as well as having some woodlands around, so the array of wild foods we can forage is quite big, from seaweed to wild greens and fungi. Every year sees us becoming more knowledgeable but it will take a lifetime to get to know just a fraction of what’s out there.
