Wild Garlic

Walking along in damp areas you will very possibly come accross the unmistable smell of wild garlic now the flowers are starting to appear.  You can gather either the flowers or the leaves for use in the kitchen.  For instance, this evening, I gathered a handful of flowers, mixed them with a little salt, pepper and balasmic vinegar and threw the whole lot over some roasting veg and some sossys, in the oven for 40 mins – smells great, tastes great!

The flowers are also lovely added to a green salad, sprinkle the flowers in individually for a very lighht garlic-y flavour and scent.

If you find them in abundance, large amounts of the flowers can be gathered and frozen in bags or boxes, each time you need some garlic, throw in a handful of frozen flowers.
