Jonny Crockett - forager and bushcraft expert - gives us some ideas for recipes that utilise spring foraging opportunities

Q: Spring is springing. Is there a seasonal recipe that you can recommend for an avid forager like myself?

JONNY CROCKETT replies: April and May immediately make me think of wild garlic. One of my favourite recipes is trout with wild garlic mash potatoes. A simple grilled trout with a creamy potato (with cheese) and chopped up wild garlic. I’ve also tried garlic ice cream and garlic beer.
