How do you cook heartnuts, hawthorn fruits or hostas? What's the best way to preserve autumn olives or buffalo berries? Forest gardening is attracting increasing interest as an alternative approach to growing food - but once you've planted your garden and it's harvest time, what should you do with the produce? From bamboo shoots and beech leaves to medlars and mashua, Food from your Forest Garden offers creative and imaginative ways to enjoy the crops from your forest garden. It provides cooking advice and recipe suggestions, with notes on every species in the bestselling Creating a Forest Garden by Martin Crawford. The book includes: * Over 70 recipes for over 60 different species, presented by season, plus raw food options. * Information on the plants' nutritional value, with advice on harvesting and processing. * Chapters on preserving methods, from traditional preserves such as jams to ferments and fruit leathers. With beautiful colour photographs of plants and recipes, this book is an invaluable resource for making the most of your forest garden - and an inspiration for anyone thinking of growing and using forest garden plants.
