Foraging for Brassicas

Foraging for wild foods during winter months brings us in contact with precious plants such as cresses and rocket. They belong to a family of plants that are greatly valued for their medicinal properties and nutritional richness: Brassicaceae, also still known as Cruciferae. It is the family of cabbages, kale, broccoli, mustard, watercress, horseradish, but also plenty of other wild edibles that are less known. Christopher Hope gives us a nice introduction to the world of Brassicas in the article (click on the link below):
