Wild Leaf Salad Mix
1 Bag (min. 50g)
A salty & succulent wild taste of the sea. Mix in with crushed new potatoes and serve alongside fish.
These fleshy leaves are ideal in any recipe that needs salt and texture, and add a charming visual addition to any dish. Sage-like greyish-green raw and vibrant green when cooked.
Sea Purslane should be left on the branches and picked off as and when required. Will last 7 days or more refrigerated. Wash before use.
To cook - blanch or steam very quickly (too long and the leaves turn dark green and the flavour becomes bitter) and dress with butter and/or lemon. Raw leaves are like a wild salty bar snack which your guests will be unable to keep their hands off!
In 2003 French chef Blaise Vasseur, having witnessed the influence of wild plants on his native cuisine through chefs such as Michel Bras, asked Forager founder Miles Irving to supply wild plants to the newly opened Goods Shed in Canterbury. This spark ignited a wild food renaissance in the UK. Now, 14 years on, a team of highly skilled foragers are hand-picking wild flavours at their peak, full of vitality which speak of the season. This is ‘hyper-seasonality’- a step up from seasonal eating of farmed produce! With over a decade's experience of supplying the best chefs in the UK, you can expect wild ingredients of the highest possible quality delivered to your doorstep to enrich and enliven your meals. By pairing these super-nutritious and flavoursome wild ingredients with the skills and knowledge possessed by talented chefs, these overlooked treasures have been elevated and put back on our plates.Find out more
