From here to Autumn, a wider variety of edible plant species come into season. To showcase some of the easiest to find (and the prettiest) I created a Salad with some edible flowers and leaves from the lawn. In the Salad were:
- Primrose flowers
- Daisy flowers
- Dandelion flowers
- Ransom (wild garlic) flowers
- Hawthorn leaves
There is also a delicious type of Mushroom available in May too. The St. George’s Mushroom is easy to identify and appears around St. George’s day (23rd of April).
I brought these treats along on my monthly trip to Ken McGuire at KCLR. We enjoyed both with a little lightly-fried Venison. Delicious.
