INFO

Let's just get it out there right now so we can all have a chuckle and move on: the berries from hawthorn are known as haws. There, we said it. Let's explore them a bit more.

Haws (stop it now) are a red berry and as we all know from childhood, you should never eat red berries. Right? Not quite. There are a few red berries that will send you to hospital, but red berries are so common in our diets that they could do with a bit of a review. Strawberries, rasperries, lingonberries, cranberries, tayberries, wineberries, rowanberries... the list of amazing edible red berries goes on and on. Great news for foragers then, as hawthorn is by far the most common hedgerow tree in the UK and it is often found laden with these delicious berries.

In terms of flavour, we are very much talking about apples and pears here, but there is something a bit more autumnal and almost spicy about haws when used in certain ways. We've exhibited them in a simple ketchup using apple cider vinegar and sugar, keeping it light on the additional spices to really let the haws do the talking. Unlike more familiar ketchups, this is more runny (no bottle whacking here) but far tangier than what you might have come to expect from a red ketchup. Use sparingly alongside cold meats or cheese and you'll soon be convinced that these red berries are well worth your time.
