Traditionally the time to pick wild bilberries is on Fraughan sunday, the last sunday in July (today) it comes from the Irish "fraochán" the anglicised version of which is fraughan which bilberries are known as in Ireland. So early up before the other gatherers to find enough for a pancake or two..
It's been a good year for them, so it didn't take long to gather enough for a few pancakes
15 mins and plenty for a lunch
whip up a simple pancake batter and add half the berries, use the other half to make a coulis for the pancakes
looking good, nice and brown and ready for a short stack
stack on a plate, drizzle with bilberry coulis, add a little cream and tuck in, food fit for a king!
