A great walk past Walton Dam and through Summersall Park along the Hipper Valley route (to reclaim my car after a night out – great party – thanks Lorna!) this afternoon resulted in a gathering of early wild garlic leaves. So bright green that they really stood out in the leaf litter along the stream banks. Crushing the leaves the pungent unmistakable smell was immediately obvious. At home I sliced a slot in the piece of lamb destined for dinner and filled the hole with the leaves – instant stuffing!! So much easier than all that cutting slivers of garlic and trying to push them into cuts in a leg of lamb. Result – beautiful delicately-flavoured roast lamb.
