Wild Garlic

This year I learnt that wild garlic is a thing, AND you can eat it!

Wild Garlic is native to Britain and grows in Spring. You can find these across ancient woodland floors and trust me when I say you can smell them too! I didn’t know that wild garlic was a thing until this year when someone asked if they could pick it nearby. It turns out there is absolutely tons of the stuff only 5 mins walk from where I live. We went and checked it out.

(You can eat the flowers too)

After picking a lot (and trying to avoid leaves that obviously had bird poo on) we took a carrier bag full of it home and gave it a good wash. Then we made Wild Garlic Pesto.

If you like garlic then you should give this a go because it was bloody tasty! Plus Garlic is good for you! Wild Garlic is thought to lower cholesterol and blood-pressure, which in turn helps to reduce the risk of diseases such as heart attack or stroke. 😉

Here is the recipe that you will want to try out. We used hazelnuts instead of pine nuts because we couldn’t find pine nuts anywhere!

All of these photos were taken with my Minolta Dynax 7 using Kodak Gold which I developed using CineStill’s C41 Monobath kit.
