Pretty sure I post about wild garlic every spring but seriously if you live close to any woodlands or graveyards (where wild garlic loves to grow) you need to get yourself out there and forage this stuff! Free, delicious it grows in abundance and ITS BLOODY GOOD FOR YOU!
It’s absolutely glorious foraging for wild garlic at the moment as the flowers have appeared (meaning they won’t be around for much longer!) We’re lucky to have a few local hotspots that we are using our daily exercise to gather bundles. We never forage more than we need, but there is so much of it I think it could feed all of Bristol!
It’s very distinctive with its long green leaves and you simply need to snap one off and smell it to identify - it smells strongly of garlic. It can be eaten raw, made into pestos but most commonly I stir it into dishes like spinach (here we made a Thai stir fry) or simply fry it with butter which if off-the-scale-good. My top tip is don’t forget the flowers - they added an incredible kick to our stir fry last night.
