Today we made some garlic bread using foraged wild garlic… and it was delicious!
With the wild garlic in abundance at the moment we headed to Symonds Yat in the Wye Valley to combine a lovely walk with some foraging.
We located the wild garlic and picked the leaves, you can also use the flowers and small bulbs in your recipe but we opted to use only the leaves and leave the pretty flowers mostly untouched… however we did take just a few sprigs for decoration.
You can locate the wild garlic by the aroma in the air and when you break a leaf you will get a strong whiff too.
When we got home we washed our leaves in warm water.
We then chopped it up coarsely and finely.
We added butter to the chopped up mix…
…some salt and pepper…
…and a dash of sunflower oil. (You could also use olive oil.)
We then cut some slits in our bread and stuffed it with our butter.
We wrapped it in foil and cooked it in the oven at 190C for around 15- 20 minutes, checking regularly.
When cooked we served it up with some cheese topped soup.
It was delicious 🙂
