The Hedgerow Handbook: Recipes, Remedies and Rituals (Hardback)Adele Nozedar (author)
- 10+ in stock
The Hedgerow Handbook is the ultimate guide for nature lovers and foragers alike.
If there's one distinctive feature of the British countryside, it has to be the hedgerow. In fact, hedgerows are such an established part of our landscape that sometimes we take them for granted.
But take a closer look, and the diversity and variety of plant species that form them is little short of wondrous. And it is not only plant life that thrives in abundance in the hedgerow - native wild animals, birds and insects are protected and nourished by them. We know that at least 65 species of birds live in our hedgerows and that they are crucial to the survival of moths, bats and dormice.
From angelica to ash and bird cherry to borage, from pineapple weed to plantain and wild garlic to wimberries, each entry is accompanied by an exquisite full colour illustration to help you identify each plant or flower, along with its history and folklore, and culinary and medicinal uses. You won't find yet another recipe for blackberry pie nor nettle soup here, however - this is not your run-of-the mill hedgerow book.
Instead, why not try Adele's Spicy Ash Key Pickle, her Beechnut Turron, Red Clover Lemonade or Wild Raspberry Vodka?
The Hedgerow Handbook is much more than a foraging book - it is an inspiration and a trigger for a new experience of our countryside.

Saying that plants can heal is not just dangerous for the idiots who believe it and the ignorant who don't know better, but even worse its dangerous for the plants which come under risk of local extinct from... More
