Go­ing out to gather a wild har­vest is one of the most sat­is­fy­ing ways for you, your fam­ily and your friends to spend a cou­ple of hours on a sunny, late­Sum­mer af­ter­noon. Es­pe­cially now, as there are plenty of berries on the trees and in the hedgerows, and the tang of au­tumn hasn’t yet kicked in prop­erly.

Any for­ager will tell you that this time of year is the best for the task, since this is when berries, mush­rooms and nuts – the prize in­gre­di­ents for any for­ager – are avail­able for those with sharp eyes. The thrill of seek­ing out free foods like this is some­thing that can’t be repli­cated on­line; it’s an ex­pe­ri­ence which brings all your senses into play.

All the in­gre­di­ents used here are at their best at this time of year, but they won’t be for much longer… So get out and start gath­er­ing them up be­fore au­tumn turns them bit­ter.
