What's for dinner?

What's for dinner?, a phrase that's uttered the length and breadth of Britain, well tonight we have (from left to right) Alexanders, Cleavers, Hawthorn leaves & Garlic Mustard (Jack by the hedge)

 

The Alexander stems were cut up into lengths of approx 2-4 inches in length and boiled in lightly salted water for about 10 mins, the Cleavers get a quick blanch rather than taken to the boil.


and then served with a knob of real butter, some black pepper and sea salt with a Garlic Mustard flower for garnish

 

The Alexander leaves, Hawthorn leaves and Garlic Mustard leaves were washed and served as a side salad with a drizzle of Balsamic vinegar and Olive Oil, no pics I'm afraid it got demolished before i got a chance to take a pic.

Great tasty dinner along side a couple of Turkey steaks - total cost = pennies.
