Sea Kale Rosti

Very few people mention using the root of sea kale, but in this sea kale recipe the deep flavours come through, a combination between cooked broccoli stems and sweet chestnuts. A very interesting sea kale recipe, and one well worth trying if you like something different.

A warning though, digging up sea kale roots needs the land owners permission, and because digging up the roots causes the plant to die, please only try this very occasionally. In some parts of the country sea kale is very scarce.

My Latest Print Book is Now Available on Amazon

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.
