We have loads of Herb Bennet growing in our beautiful ancient woodland in Kent. I knew that it had been used as a flavouring in Victorian times, but this recipe from Robin Harford to have it crispy fried as an alternative to seaweed is a real winner!

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 6 handfuls of Herb Bennet leaves, chopped
  • 2 handfuls of ramsons, chopped
  • Knob of butter
  • Sugar

Step 2: How to Cook the Crispy Fried Herb Bennet

  • Melt the butter in a frying pan
  • Add the chopped leaves and fry until crispy, adding more butter if required

Step 3: Sit Down and Eat

Now it's time to sit down by your campfire and enjoy your wild food cooking.

    Hmmm sounds tasty, I bet it has a nice crispy texture! Do you eat it like a salad, or do you sprinkle it over something? If you sprinkle it over something, please do an instructable telling us about it.
