The Big Billberry Pick -Macclesfield.

July 21 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

£1.00

This afternoon is solely focused on the magnificent bilberry! Bilberries are full of goodness and grow in plentiful numbers on Teggs Nose.

Bilberries can be enjoyed in a variety of culinary creations, including jams, pies, tarts, and desserts. They can also be added to smoothies or enjoyed fresh. Bilberries are native to Europe, Asia, and North America. They are often found growing in forests, heathlands, and moors. Bilberries have a unique and intense flavor that is both sweet and slightly tangy. Their taste is often described as more intense than that of blueberries.

This is an event that is open to the public and we managed to get 10 tickets before it sold out. We will be joined by Totally Wild who will go through the basics of foraging, how they got started and some of the best practices they’ve found along the way. We will also gain insights into proper harvesting techniques, accurate identification, potential look-alikes, and a wealth of culinary inspiration.

We will then head out on our walk to embark on an immersive journey focused exclusively on foraging bilberries. You’ll be sent off to gather a nice amount of berries and we’ll ask you to add your bilberries to the jam pot where we will be creating bilberry jam for everyone to take home!

WHAT TO BRING

  • A 200ml jar for taking home your bilberry jam
  • A drink – some wild flavours may be strong and water is always advised for a days foraging
  • A pad or paper should you wish to take notes
  • Please note: this event is not dog-friendly and takes place outdoors so appropriate footwear is needed.
