Monday sees the easing of restrictions and we’re looking forward to exploring a little more within our county and finding new ways to experiment with the free food that grows on our little island.
In the meantime, we're sticking closer to home and to our lovely local woods for this weeks edition of Pickable Edibles where we are looking at Wood Sorrel, the little weed that can sometimes be misconstrued for a clover but when found can make an excellent addition to your dishes that might be lacking in flavour, or the perfect complement to your afternoon picnic.
Wood Sorrel is an interesting one as it has quite a powerful flavour for such a little plant. Its zingy taste makes it the perfect garnish for salads and sandwiches, but it is also quite commonly used as a palate-cleanser in restaurants thanks to its pungent citrus flavour.
Best eaten fresh, wood sorrel is the perfect addition to your picnic in the woods. Add it to your sandwiches, toss some in a salad to add that touch of citrus flavour or add it to your eggs in the morning. In the above photo we've served ours on a fresh salmon open sandwich with dill mayo and black pepper – the perfect start to the weekend!
We love Wood Sorrel, but it not one to overeat, we use it sparingly for flavour. Enjoy!

The Travel Mask:
At this time we only produce in 1 size, Medium. Currently, we are NOT able to produce in Large due to production limitations during the COVID-19 lockdown. These are adult sizes only. We do not currently make masks for children.
We recommended mask size selection dimensions based on average face ratios. A women’s faces tends to be smaller than a man’s face so typically women will require a Medium and men will require a Large. We do recommend you check the size required by following our measuring guide below before ordering.
The dimensions of The Travel Mask are -
Medium: 23.5cm wide and 12.5cm high
Large: 26.5cm wide x 14.5cm high
So to select your size use this guide - with a measuring tape, measure the distance across the middle of your face over the tip of your nose to within 2cm from each ear. Next measure the distance between your chin to the bridge of your nose.

Cross face measurements will be between 25cm and 28cm. Chin to the bridge of nose measurements will be between 10cm and 13cm.
For Large Travel Masks -
