- Wild garlic
In the kitchen
Unlike domestic garlic, wild garlic is championed for its leaves rather than its bulb. The bulbs, along with the flowers, are edible, but are much smaller in quantity. Wild garlic has a very similar taste to domestic garlic, yet slightly milder. The leaves are delicious raw or cooked and work well in salads and soups.
A note on foraging
Please forage responsibly; do not pick from nature reserves, pick senstively in the wider countryside so as not to trample other species and do not uproot unless you have the landowner's permission.
