Whilst trying to recognise a tree at work, I came across this site.
Being a fan of seasonal food rather than shipping it halfway across the world this site rather appealed to me and they have a food of the week on the home page.
For those interested I have this book Food For Free which is a handy sized guide for when your walking in the woods. Elderberries are ripe at this time and make an evil wine, don’t try them raw !
The tree was a chestnut and I believe the nuts are edible, but I will know more about that when they ripen.
