After reading a story about a woodland picnic with his Dad today, James asked if we could have bramble pie. He was rather impressed with the illustration in the book. Luckily I had a small tub of brambles, (or blackberries) stashed in the freezer from a foraging trip in September. I eked them out with some wonderful locally grown organic pears and was very happy with the result. So was James - he had 3 slices! Local, organic and the brambles were free - how bad can that be?
