There are plenty of healthy and edible delicacies growing everywhere in the wild. They will give your cooking a fresh boost, and they are completely free too! Besides, taking a walk through the pantry of nature is good for the soul.
One of the passions of Anette Eckmann is to go outside to collect edible plants, herbs, berries, roots, nuts, mushrooms, bark and so on; and with that cook up the most beautiful chutneys, marmalades, lemonades, flavoured butter, herbal teas and soups.
The book “Nature’s pantry” is all about edible things that are easy to find in many places, and that can’t be mistaken for poisonous or inedible plants. This book is an encyclopaedia, that runs from birch and blackberries, via elder and angelica to wood sorrel and violets. The comprehensive calendar explains when all the gastronomical goodies in nature are in season; and the book also contains advice on how to pick, pluck and store them.the g
