This is a cookbook to celebrate the sometimes forgotten fruits and nuts to be found in hedgerows and old gardens for those adventurous enough to look.

It contains recipes for crab apples, blackberries, damsons, sloes, hips and haws, elderflowers and elderberries. Quinces, medlars, figs and mulberries are included plus hazelnuts, chestnuts, walnuts and poppy seeds.

There are recipes for wonderful quince cheese, hot apple and blackberry soufflés, mulberry and peach summer pudding, elderflower sorbet, medlar jelly, apple and rosehip jam, walnut and black treacle loaf, poppy seed shortbread and much more.

The history and nutritional value of each fruit and nut is included and suggestions on where to find them in the countryside – everything for anyone wishing to enjoy a natural diet and much of it for free!
