April foraging expedition in Bath UK

Today was a foraging day on the edge of Bath, UK with a couple of friends.  We found nettles, wild garlic, garlic mustard, dandelion leaves and flowers, daisy leaves, plantain and bramble shoots.  Some images from our expedition;

path in Bath

and flowers for making pesto, soup
and adding to salads
We found garlic mustard.  The leaves
can be eaten in salads, made into a
pesto or cooked like spinach.

I found comfrey plants on the edge of a field

in a batter and deep fried

Bramble shoots can be soaked in boiling water
and drunk as a refreshing tea

Dandelion flowers are sweet and crunchy when
 eaten raw or they can be breaded and deep fried or made
 into dandelion wine
