Wild garlic

20130407-101129.jpg

Even though spring is slow to get up and running in the garden the hedge row seems to be catching up that means the foragers larder is open. I’m no expert but I love how i can stride with confidence into a woodland and pick wild garlic or Ramsons as we call them. They are so easy to find and identify, normally the fragrance gives them away first. Just be careful that you’ve not picked lords and ladies which is not good for you, the leaf shape is different more heart shaped.

There is a million things you can do with them just use your imagination I’ve just had them on toast with cheese, easy tasty breakfast.

    Use it anywhere you can put onion, it works as well.
    In french we call it ail des ours, Garlic of the bears :-) in latin it is allium ursinum.
    I love it, I get it every other day and there is more and more every time I go. :-)
    I just did a butter chicken and included some.
