With the spring comes the new Wild Garlic.

Wild garlic is a plant that grows in the forest of north-and central Europe. It appears at the beginning of the spring when the snow has gone. The plant is then harvested over a very short period of time, not exceeding a couple of weeks between March and April.

It nice green color and light garlic touch makes it a very interesting fresh spring herb that will find its place in many recipes such as pesto, fresh cheese, soups and many others.
