And below follows the foodstuffs that I have foraged:
Hazelnuts have 667kcal per 100g. I took an average weight of the foraged nuts (5 of), which include the shells and probably a bit of moisture, and then an average of store-bought hazelnuts (which are what the nutrition is based on).
As I foraged 190g of hazelnuts and the store-bought are approximately 50% of the weight, I conclude that this is worth (190/2) * (667/100) = 95 * 66.7 = 634kcal
I've been picking, prepping and drying more hazelnuts. To store them long-term, I've been trimming off any of the green casing (to minimise moisture retention) and drying the nuts by the wood stove, on stackable cake racks. The drying process clearly removes a lot of moisture as the nuts feel much lighter after a day or two.
I've attached two harvests worth - one after drying (as I forgot to do so beforehand) , which will probably be an underestimate of calorific value, and one beforehand, as usual.
