It seemed such a long way away when we first planned it, but the Wild Food Walk for Trasnition Chesterfield is coming up fast next week. I am taking care to particularly make a mental note of the things that I will expect to find, so that when I do a recc-y I will be able to work out a route quite fast.
I know for certain, that as with other years, the Horseradish that is growing wild in the park, will ‘just happen’ to be mown down just before the walk and all that will be in evidence will be a few tattered leaves. However, if you manage to coem across some (and you have permission from the landowner) to dig it up, this is what you can do with it.
Grate a chunk of horseradish and mix it with whipped cream, adding a little salt, pepper and mustard powder. Use with beef as you would horseradish sauce.
