Wild garlic leaves - Food Find

Last Saturday I spotted the first of the broad-leaved wild garlic at Tony Booth's Tayshaw arch at 60 Druid Street SE1 so I can reliably alert you to their availability this week.   Ramsons, Buckrams, Wood garlic or Bear's garlic, whatever you call it don't miss it over the next few weeks.  Wild Ramson, Allium ursinum, is a wild relative of chives.  If you go out foraging in deciduous woodland for it, be sure it is wild garlic by crushing the leaves to release the distinctive garlic scent.  They have an affinity with eggs and make a fantastic addition to soups but here's another simple way of enjoying wild garlic which I posted around this time last year.
