It's Cobnuts!

It's literally nuts that most people don't think about foraging for food.  They say that money doesn't grow on trees but food does and modern day society seems to have forgotten this.  Not only does it save you money to forage but you can find things that are extraordinarily tastier than most shop bought produce; and sometimes even produce not readily available in the shops altogether. 
Take these cobnuts for instance; they are Kentish Cobnuts and we just don't see them normally down our end of the country.  Therefore, a recent trip to visit my parents in Kent had us collecting them like squirrels.  They may not look 'supermarket perfect' but they sure make up for it taste wise.  You could say we were like kids in a 'nature candy store'. 
And the foraging season proper is only just beginning........
