This Magnolia syrup recipe is beautiful, sensual and delicious. There are a number of different species of edible Magnolia flowers that you can use.

Ask someone their recipe for making syrup, and you’ll get numerous different replies, each one claiming theirs is the best. So egos aside, this is the one that I use.

My Latest Book is Now Available on Amazon as a Paperback or Kindle

For over fifteen years I have experimented and explored the world of wild plants. Uncovering how our ancestors used plants to nourish and heal themselves.

I’ve spent thousands of hours digging through scientific papers, read hundreds of books. Even gone so far as to be nomadic for over a year. During this time I followed the seasons and plants around the highways and byways of these isles.

I have written this book to help you rediscover our forgotten plant heritage. To learn how to use wild plants as food and medicine. Knowledge that was once common to everyone. Click here to learn more.

  1. Many thanks for this. I am a great fan but not always sure about what information I can use as I’m in Brittany, not the UK… I was looking at your posting re. good field guides to edible weeds and clicked on the links (hopefully this supports your laudable efforts!) but wasn’t sure about purchasing since many of the titles said “England and Ireland”… I know Brittany isn’t far but do you have a recommendation that would definitely be of use here?
    Best regards,
