been hovering on the edge of foraging mushrooms for years and of course as cyclists we are well placed to spot stuff, but keep backing off.Thanks, I think i'll leave mushrooms to the experts...
Ooooo, whitebait!These whitebaity type things , that had thrown themselves upon our local beach.
Foraged by a vegan friend, who couldn't bear to see them go to waste.
Suspect they are baby mackerel, shall be tossed in flour and fried up whole..

Plus not quite foraged , cos they're the leaves of a cultivated plant, but trialling green pepper leaves, in a stir fry, before the frosts get to them..
Apparently they are an everyday ingredient in South East Asian cookery.
Didn't know that...
Yes they're all edible, but some nicer than others.I would like to try more seaweeds, there arent any that you cant eat other than near a polluted water source. I did try some of the commonest seaweed growing around the highlands [a wrack?] i cut some of the freshest new shoots and quickly boiled them in a minimum of water. They were insipid tasting though i suppose in a survivalist/starving situation they would do.
Yes and the last of the padron peppers, and Italian tomatoes fried up too.Ooooo, whitebait!
Especially good with a generous squeeze of lemon, and some home made aioli
