Oo'er, missus.... :mrgreen:

You were great, Andy. As others have said, an oasis of calm amongst a somewhat shambolic programme - I too was a bit annoyed that you didn't get a word in edgeways and that they ran out of time. I call on the BBC to give you your own show!

What is the flavour of the root of the wood avens then, if one can substitute cloves? Spicy? When I googled it it seems to be used in herbal medicine to prevent stomach problems or similar. The plant looks familiar and now I'm wondering if I've got it in my garden or not - probably not the right time of year to be looking for it though amongst the overgrown dying off jungle that is my wild bit. :iconbiggrin: And thanks for the recipe, now where can I find hogweed and rose hips? Beetroot not a problem. :mrgreen:

We thought you were very professional, much calmer than the shows presenters. I don't know why the BBC (or any other stations) don't have a foragers/wild food programme........perhaps you could present one? Well done and the soup looked delishious :salute: .

A bit late I know but I've only just had chance to watch the tape.

I love 'Unsprung' but I think it wasn't the right vehicle for your piece. You'd have been much better on the main 'Autumn Watch' This is BY NO MEANS a critism of you, Andy! You were eloquant & the soup looked amazing. However, you weren't introduced or given any opportunity to explain what foraging is or anything! Demand a fresh chance...'Aunty' owes you! :wink: :lol:

Hi Andy, I have no idea how you stayed so composed in all that chaos. Well done you.

As others have said it's a shame all the buffoonery cut you short, the food looked fab. Will email the beeb to say so.

Despite that it was great to see some ish on telly, I didn't know you were going to be on and got quite excited, waving at my hubby (who was sat next to me :roll: ) and saying "look, look"! :lol:

Jill :pirate:
