Easter Ledger Pudding
As Easter approached, people in rural areas began to pay the price for their poor winter diets and meat free diet of Lent. They considered Easter Ledger Pie to be a tonic and blood purifier. Originally made with young spring leaves such as nettles, hawthorn, wild garlic, watercress, lettuce, dandelion, strawberry, raspberry etc, this dish contained iron and vitamins A and C. Having no time to forage, this version has been made with spring greens.
This goes well with dishes such as roast lamb or even a fried breakfast. Go on....treat yourself!
