I need to get me some cookbooks, if for anything just for some variety.

Whitebeam Sorbus aria
A very striking shrub, flashed with silver when the wind turns up the pale underside of the leaves. The bunched red berries are edible as soon they begin to 'blet' - or go rotten, like medlars.
Blackcurrant Ribes nigrum
The soothing properties of blackcurrant juice were probably known long before the plant passed into cultivation, for it was often given against sore throats and the 'quincy'. It is a rather uncommon plant in the wild and can readily be told from redcurrant by its larger, heavily aromatice leaves. A few of these, dried, can transform a pot of Indian tea.
The currants can also be dried and in this form they are one the bases of 'pemmican', and Amerindian dish taken up by Polar explorers. The currants are pounded together with dried meat and the mixture bound together and coated with fat or tallow. The result is a food containing almost all the ingredients necessary fro a balanced diet,which would keep well even on long journeys.
