When you go down to the woods today….. be sure to wear heavy duty gloves, preferably the really toughened ones that you use for pulling out brambles. These babies hurt!
A wonderful walk in the woods around Battle, East Sussex takes us into coppice Chestnut woods, which at this time of year provide us with some free and foraged meals.
I’ll post my favourite chestnut based recipe later. In the meantime I hope you like the photos I took.
Just be sure to wear gloves, otherwise the woods will echo to the sound of OWWWWOUCH!
