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.
- 50g of chickweed
- 300g of potatoes

How to make chickweed & feta fritters

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.
