Garlic Mustard

One of the best wild spring leaves with the punchiest flavour is Garlic Mustard (Jack by the hedge) .  It is best before it flowers, but even when covered in its tiny white florets, there are still bright green juicy leaves especially in a good spring like this.

Its good to eat as a leafy snack when walking, but can be a bit strong for some people’s tastes.  I chopped a few leaves the other evening and added it to creamy mashed potatoes to go with liver and onions for my dinner and it was most delicious.
