Foraging workshop

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

I think exploding chestnuts do smell like potato when done in the oven :)

I've roasted hazelnuts in their shells, in the hot ashes of a fire. They didn't 'pop', they did kind of steam though.
These were pretty fresh ones that I roasted, no idea how the dried shop bought ones might react.
Be careful would probably be the best advice :)

It's nearly the end of September, I have no idea when the fresh 2019 nut crop will be harvested.
What's in the store could be 2018 = a year dried.
Guess I'd better ask from the nutters?
