According to my mini (field guide) version of Richard Mabey’s Food For Free, there are plenty of fungi and nuts, as well as a few other goodies to forage for in November.
Here’s a quick run-down, lifted directly from Food For Free:
Cep (one of my favourites...)
Chanterelle (another of my favourites...)
Saffron milk cap
Sweet chestnut (just foraged some of these!!)
Remember leave plenty for the woods and hedgerow dwellers and take only what you can, and will eat.
Be careful with fungi –if you are in France you can check with any pharmacist on if your foraged fungi are edible if not.
Has Food for Free missed something? If so, please let me know? I’d love to read what other goodies you are foraging!
