Sample text

Stems naturally grow from a wide base, or stool, and when they are coppiced (cut back to ground level) this stool will grow bigger as new stems shoot close to the cut. Thus an old stool can have very many stems. The familiar long, yellow catkin or lamb tail is the male flower, whilst female flowers are small, red and grow from the stem like tiny red sea anemones. 42 Habitat Common hazel grows throughout Britain generally in mixed woodland, particularly oak and ash. It can tolerate a canopy of taller trees, although it can also be found in distinctive ‘nut woods’ which often still bear that name.

Uses The flowers make lovely drinks. Using lemon juice and sugary water, Cairn O’ Mohr make a non-alcoholic sparkling drink. They also ferment it into an intensely flavoured wine, good on its own, but also useful for blending with oak leaves to make a lighter flavoured drink. At home the flowers can be made into delicious wines, 38 ‘champagne’, cordials and vinegar. They may also be coated in batter and fried (elderflower fritters). The berries serve to make wine, cordial, puddings and medicinal teas and syrups (see p175 in A Medicine Chest from the Wild for the many medicinal properties of elder).

Once gathered, keep the gloves on to wash and prepare the nettles, although as soon as they feel the heat of cooking, the stings disappear. Avoid picking near roads as there is too much salt spray and mud splatter. Go for non-flowering shoots, the younger the better. Discard older stems that are trying to become string. You can manage a verge or nettle patch by cutting them back hard two or three times in the year – then you will have a supply of young, tender shoots almost all year round. Leave plenty for the insects and birds.
