Foraging to Prepare for Winter

This is my favourite time of year. Autumn seems to be the season when so much of nature’s bounty is harvestable. It’s also the time when plants make their final push, before their sleep over the dark winter months. Their display of russets, reds, oranges, and golds make the country lanes a delight to wander. If you enjoy a country walk, picking berries as you go can make it even more satisfying. Try foraging some of what nature has grown over the summer to prepare for the winter.

The UK has a wonderful array of native plants that are perfectly suited to use in winter tonics…
