Wild Leaf Salad Mix

Sloes are the fruits of the blackthorn and have been used for thousands of years by humans as food . A brilliant tonic to ward against the winter colds as they contain about 10 mg of vitamin C and 5 mg of vitamin E per 100g and are rich in other nutrients. An amazing ingredient within gin ( get ahead with your home made xmas pressies ). Also great in sweet or savoury dishes.
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
