I had mussels in a place in London that were cooked with Alexanders in the place of celery. Worked great.

Picked a few this morning, very interesting aniseed flavour when raw. Will cook them tonight and see what they’re like with some butter.

It’s along the path between the duck pond and the pitch on the coast road–the one lined with horse chestnuts. There’s loads. Be sure not to pull up the plants but just snip leaves, and not too many in any one place.

Happy foraging,

Bill

Where could I find the wild garlic in the Park? My kid loves to pick her own food!

I always thought nettle soup and nettle tea would taste like something you know is really good for you, but really don’t want to eat. But they are delish!

Good luck with the Wild Garlic. If all else fails…Raheny!
