Well admittedly its a little early to be out foraging, but despite the wintery weather, there is still a definate early spring feel out there! I was out today inspecting my ‘pet’ sorrel patch, but its not doing very much yet, but it won’t be long. : -)
However, I thought i would just share with you that I came across a most biazarre thing today – my son bought himself some sweets – Rowntrees (Nestle) Jelly Aliens which have in big letters on the front that they contain 25% fruit juice. In very very very small letters on the back (which he read – I do have better things to do!) were listed the ingredients – including ‘Fruit and vegetable concentrates (Hibiscus, Carrot, Pepper, Safflower, Spinach, Nettle)’ Now I have to say that I think that is one of the wierdest selection of ingedients, but I can’t work out why they would put those strange things in – answers on a postcard!
