Wild garlic pesto is great. Chop finely, mix with lemon juice, olive oil and grated parmesan using pestle and mortar.

Ramsons/wild garlic/ail des ours (bear's garlic, in french), are easily found in moisty areas, mostly on river borders.

They're quite common and each time I get out to catch some, there's always plenty of 'em growing wild because not so many people are aware that they're not lilies of the valley !

I tend to eat them crude, in spring salads with other wild flowers and sprouted seeds, excellent vegetarian food, and it's only even better because every bits of these ingredients are totaly... Free !

The Chechen
This is a very very well known food in Chechnya (Part of Russia). We eat it as the most dilicious food in the world. Any Chechen guy would go for Ramsons leaving any other food in the world. I'm not joking. We don't mix it with any other food. We just cook it and eat it with bread. First we boil it in the water then we fry it in sunflower or better in butter and it is very nice food!!! Don't believe?? Try yourself! Ok guys I live in the UK and I don't know any area to find it. I live in Manchester but would go even 100 miles to collect it so if you know please would you give me address or post code. Thanks.
