    i know billberries make a lovely pie... i am unsure of the way it is cooked as we used to forage them and my grandmother used to bake them, i assume it is the same method as an apple pie :rolleyes:

    Not an excellent recipe.......but as you know I always carry a bag of self raising, not foraged I know!!!! but ideal for what I need to make bread, ..............................now with it I can put a variety of things, sweeter the better, blackberries, hazlenuts, chestnuts, nettles, hairy bitter water cress, alsorts really to add flavour, high in "stodge" so keeps you going for a while and very filling.

    Oddly enough I have started doing the same. Really is a great idea. This morning after Chicken and me had peeled ourselves out of the hammocks a squirrel landed on the floor nearby (not sure how) and so we ate it. Handy having a frying pan with you.

    The self raising flour is a cracking idea i never thought of that! At my most frequented spot to camp there isn't too much edible stuff to foradge apart from berries. but i like to crush up some digestive biscuits (never go camping without a pack because im a fat git), mix it in with some berries and then fry lightly (with only a tiny smidge of oil). makes a half decent snack and i can go home with the pretense that i lived off the land haha

    I always used to carry dried pasta with me. Lightweight, not too bulky and when boiled up with some foraged nettles makes an excellent and healthy dish. Even better if you can put some rabbit or squirrel alongside it to add some much needed protein.
