Do you know of a patch of wild garlic in your neighbourhood? Perhaps not something we can all get hold of in the current lockdown situation but hopefully we will have options in future to access some wild garlic in local woodland. It is best harvested before it flowers and it is very tempting to gather considerably more than you really need, but you can freeze it in ice cubes or turn it into pasta dough as well.
Wild Garlic Mash
1kg floury main crop potatoes
2 large handfuls (about 150g) wild garlic leaves
150 – 300 ml hot milk
Saute wild chopped wild garlic before stirring through the mashed potatoes.
