A trip back up north at the start of May meant a chance to get into the forest. I ended up with a couple of huge bags of sweet cicely which I gave to the guys at bread & wine and a small bag of pine shoots for myself. I have used the shoots in the past for juices and granita. Obviously the flavour is pure pine but not over powering, subtle but it lingers. These will go into a dessert with raspberries, meringue and toasted barley.
