Caught a net full of crayfish in the river, tied up with grass because the damn things kept climbing out.



The last of this seasons wild garlic


and a handful of wild rose hips, still on the bushes from last autumm, slightly squidgy but well past their best.

An invasive species here so this really is the most ethical source of protein

Rather than boil them alive i got mini-soul involved humanely dispatching them, he surprised me by doing them all very professionally, especially for a first attempt.

If you wiggle the middle of the 5 tail fins from left to right you can carefully twist and remove the entire waste sack in one go.

I removed all of the meat

Boiled some spaghetti, chucked the crayfish in the hot spaghetti water for 3mins, i then gently fried the wild garlic, along with some chorizo, the rose hips and a handful of black olives, chucked the drained spaghetti in along with the crayfish meat and...... Ta-Daaaa!

Cherries are plentiful this year, be quick before the blackbirds snaffle them all.
