Chickweed & feta fritters


We had these delicious chickweed & feta fritters for lunch last week and they were wonderful.  Chickweed (Stellaria media) is a common plant in the UK and can often be found in fields and on waste ground.  We picked a load in the field next to our ancient woodland camp.

We identify, collect and cook with a wide range of plants on our weekend long Wild Foods & Woodland Cooking course and also on our 1 Day Spring Forage.  You can see loads of photos from that, and all of our other courses, on our Facebook page.
