I know my first ever post probably won’t be seen by many but I would still like to introduce myself. My name is Dakota and I want to start a blog about the food I’ve been finding and cooking. I always knew people went out foraging but I thought it was just for berries and mushrooms and stuff. How wrong was I?
Honestly I haven’t been doing it for long, and I’m not a “professional” forager, I just pick the fruit and then make some puddings!
I’m lucky I discovered the Grove in summer when the fruit is just beginning to ripen. If it had been any other time of the year I’m guessing I would’ve just walked straight past.
The Grove as I’ve named it is small area in the middle of the woods near my house, I wouldn’t have known it was there if I hadn’t have tripped on an apple!
There are two apple trees and about 5 plum trees. I can’t wait for them to ripen!
So far I have only made a blackberry pie and an apple and blackberry crumble. I am hoping to discover more fruit and then cook much more recipes!
Thanks for listening, x
