This episode features Gregorie Marshall, Master Salter at Blackthorn Salt. They are harnessing the sea on the west coast of Scotland and trickling the seawater down an incredible graduation tower stuffed full of blackthorn – aka sloe. It’s a shame I can’t visit the unique structure for myself which is a first in the UK, but I do have a box of their salt in the kitchen which I use to finish dishes and in salted caramels.
Fergus The Forager chats about one of his favourite winter mushrooms, the wax cap.
