While I was out on my walk the other day I picked some ramsons or wild garlic leaves to cook with. And as with all wild food you need to know what you are picking as there are some similar poisonous plants around. I have ramsons in my garden so I know what they are. I remember childhood picnics in the woods and loving the smell of wild garlic.
These are the leaves, you can see how it could be easy to confuse them with something poisonous like lily of the valley, but these have that distinctive garlic smell, and the flowers are quite different, I know what I’m picking. They also have a spring onion like flavour. Don’t eat anything you don’t know.
I think they would be great in egg mayonnaise, hummous and pasta sauces or salads
