and that's why I was reminded of my days spent metal detecting at least I was guaranteed to return home with a different kind of treasure!

Yes, a good time of year for things like that - although I've noticed the sloes are ready a bit too early this year.

I got a reasonable crop of hazelnuts on the last rally I was on - I usually avoid the blackberries until they have been soaked overnight (to remove their visitors), cooked in sugar and wrapped in pastry at which point they are very nice Smiley

Yes love blackberries and all the countryside fruit that comes with the territory.  Had 3/4 of a carrier bag of hazelnuts from my garden

I've had a few picks at the Blackberries and frozen some down for the Winter. Nothing nicer than a Blackberry and Apple pie in January.
I've picked Hazel nuts before and been disappointed with them but this year, by chance, I think I've discovered the secret. Don't pick............pick up.  Wait till they start falling.  I've got loads drying nicely for Xmas.  I don't like the taste of them too fresh.
One of my neighbours just can't resist them. When I'm out walking the dogs I always know where he's stopped for a snack by the pile of broken shells.  I met him out one day,  him, his dog and his nut crackers. Roll Eyes
