What is Wild Garlic?

Wild Garlic is also known as Ransoms and is a leafy plant that appears in spring. You can eat the young leaves and the flowers which both have a pungent smell of garlic but are mild in flavour.

Where does Wild Garlic Grow?

Close to where I live there are some woods with a burn (stream) running through them and this is my favourite place to walk. The Wild Garlic (Ransoms) grows all along the banks of the burn and into the woodland. It even spills out onto the roadsides.

Always pick wild garlic far from the roadside and traffic pollution. Get more information about foraging for wild garlic on theCountryfilewebsite

How do you prepare Wild Garlic?

Was the Wild Garlic carefully then you can use it just as you would other herbs. Or store it wrapped in damp kitchen paper and a plastic bag in the salad drawer of the fridge. It will keep for 2 or 3 days stored like this without any ill effect.

Can you freeze Wild Garlic?

You can chop it finely and put in ice cube trays then cover with olive oil. Drop these cubes into soups and stews to add a little wild garlic flavour.

Can you freeze Wild Garlic Blender Pesto?

Yes! Wild Garlic Pesto freezes really well and is a great way to preserve wild garlic as it has a very short season.
