Food in Season

Rubus fruticosus is the Latin name for the European blackberry, also known as bramble. Like the raspberry, it is an aggregate fruit and relative of the rose. It is a highly adaptable and fast-growing shrub, found in hedgerows, woodland, meadows and wasteland. Archaeological records show that European inhabitants ate blackberries as long ago as 8,000 BC. Blackberries are packed with antioxidants, including vitamin C and ellagic acid, which may provide protection against cancer and chronic disease. Their many tiny seeds are a source of soluble fibre, such as pectin.                    

Grouse (Glorious 12th)
The red grouse, Lagopus lagopus scotica, is a medium-sized bird found in heather moorland. Grouse have a very strong and distinctive flavour and accordingly are greatly in demand. Their diet is restricted to the heather on the moorlands in northern Britain where they live, and this is why their flavour is 'heathery'. They are the earliest game bird to come into season on 12 August but their season also finishes early on the 10 December when the moors are generally snow covered. During the beginning of the season birds born that year, called ‘young’ grouse, are particularly tender and are best plain roasted.
