Day Six- A New Food

Thursday, 6 May 2010

I discovered something new in my veg box this week! It’s wild garlic and it’s the first I’ve ever seen it. Wild garlic has the same smell and taste as traditional garlic, but on a milder level. If fact, it’s mild enough to toss into salads. It’s actually leaves which are long and look similar to leaves on corn stalks. I have quite a large bag so I’ll be on the lookout this week for ways to use it. Tonight we had spinach pizza so I added it on top and it was delicious- a mild garlic flavor in every bite! I’m thinking wild garlic bread sounds really nice…
