Just finished a little contribution to our village cook book. All a bit last minute before we depart for our summer place in Hungary. It was great fun to do these drawings, far less pressure than normal and much more thanks than you get from big store buyers! But my ampersands gave me so much trouble.
OK, so maybe I hadn't just bagged a woolly mammoth, but even more delectable, wild garlic or Medve Hagyma, bear onions in Hungarian. In desperation, having forgotten to buy spinach I went out foraging for the last of this season's crop growing wild in the corner of a field in my village, fed by the brook.
The stems are both crunchy and sweet with a heat which becomes mild when wilted in a little butter. Definitely worth the odd nettle sting.
