Right now there’s still time to take advantage of one of the easiest wild foods to use.
Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) is abundant on verges, path edges and in the foot of hedgerows. As it’s name suggests, it’s related to mustard but the leaves taste deliciously of garlic.
It can be added to salads or used as an ingredient in hot dishes; and is a great way to show off your foraging skills to those who don’t think they would enjoy wild leaves. It can also liven up a meal if you’re already out camping this spring.
