Foraging in the Hedgerow

Autumn is definitely here ... I tend to feel slightly detatched from Mother Nature stuck in the big smoke ... so it was nice to go home to the Cotswolds and see how far on Autumn actually is. I love the cooler mornings and beautiful colours. This weekend we headed to the hedgerows to pick some sloes (I'm not making any sloe gin this year, but was picking some for a friend who had given me some blackcurrants in the Summer), some crab apples and some rosehips. I'm looking forward to making crab apple jelly and rosehip relish (from a recipe in my dad's book-more of that later!)
