UK Foraging in September - “The berries are back & there are nuts to enjoy!”

Updated: Oct 4, 2020

Foraging and eating wild food is a fantastic way to build your appreciation for nature, not to mention a learning experience that comes with rewards right now and in the future.

Eat something wild everyday! In the UK, September is a great time to enjoy public footpaths leading through the British countryside where you can find hedgerows and fields decorated with edible wild food. Read on to learn typical finds during September.

I'd like to share with you what can be easily discovered and what useful things you can do with what you find. A point worth noting is that there are many wild fruits recommended for picking only after the first frost however, you can mimic this by placing your foraged goodies into the freezer for 24 hours, defrost and then use in your recipes.
