    The choices aren't really easy to make. It drives me a little crazy that one can buy a well built toaster in London that is made in England, while in the US there are only Chinese crap imports.
    This is true of every product in the U.S.

    I have been known to forage for wild food from time to time (and not just becouse I was skint - I like the taste of it).

    Stinging nettles are excellent - use them like spinach - great in curries. Just wash them first in case some labrador has pissed on them.

    That's from my yard actually.
    Wild mangoes are usually really stringy and have huge seeds.

    I have 2 kinds of mango (Hayden and Shibata), papaya, coconut, lychee, loong on, tangerine, lime, avocado, carambola, surinam cherry, 3 kinds of tomato, 5 peppers, guava and passion fruit.
    I also have a small herb garden.


    I've had nettles in a pesto, tasty!

    Yeah, but that's cuz a certain someone in your household likes lots of capsicum (along with sand) in his warmer climes.

    The screams can be heard as far away as Slough.

    I even make mayonnaise by myself, because I don't like that shitstuff inside for no reason, and for the better taste of course.

    (I've never been to the US, never left Continental Europe.)

    I don't even own a microwave.

    Best part of that is:

    Aquafina labels to spell out source - tap water


    PepsiCo Inc. will spell out that its Aquafina bottled water is made with tap water, a concession to the growing environmental and political opposition to the bottled water industry. According to Corporate Accountability International, a U.S. watchdog group, the world's No. 2 beverage company will include the words "Public Water Source" on Aquafina labels.

    I should so change my name to that! Anyway, sand is a natural exfoliant, food isn't the only thing that can be foraged from your surroundings.

    This probably sounds like a silly question, but how do you stop them from stinging you?

    Simples - don't eat them raw.

    Seriously, pick then with gloves as well as washing/preparing them. Once they are cooked they are fine. It's normally best to pick them earlier on in the year when you get younger leaves - if they are too old they get a bit stringy.
