ARTISAN PRODUCERS INPUT, MARCH-NOVEMBER
Of course there will be products that need to be integrated with non-wild foods. This will provide vital input for our artisan primary and secondary food producers. For example:
- Wild Elderberry and Strawberry Jam
- Wild Venison Sausage hot dogs
Both these examples contain foods that are not wild i.e. strawberries, pectin, bread baps, mustard and ketchup and indeed ingredients in the wild venison sausage. However the overall thrust of wild food has not been lost.
All Market Stall Holders, nationwide, are being invited to provide and sell produce with a Wild&Slow twist on November 12th & 13th.
The list is endless and will be formulated with the help of templates, clearly showing where and when to locate the wild food and how to preserve it for use in a product suitable for Wild&Slow.
