Got a few hundred stacked in blanched "cigars" and also stacked green vine leaves in the freezer. they work very well for dolmades/koupepia as well as wrapping in homemade quick cheeses.

Try using fig leaves too as they impart a very subtle taste and aroma to many foodstuffs..

Havent posted in a while but hello everybody I am still here but foraging is increasing at present and time is too short!!!... pressed 140kg of apples for cider and pomace goes straight to the geese!!! more apples from locals to come!!!!!!!

Regards

Stephen

wave Hi Stephen!  So you went for farming the geese then?  Good to see you again and to know that you are busy foraging and making.

I'll try that again!
