What is wild garlic?

Although it has the same name as the commercialized clove vegetable whose heads you use, wild garlic is quite different from the garlic you know. The first notable difference is that wild garlic is a wild garlic. It is a medicinal plant that is becoming more and more important in our kitchens, and for good reason, it is a plant that offers superb aromatic qualities. Another difference between traditional garlic and wild garlic is that the latter is much less strong and aggressive. It is slightly pungent and spicy. I suggest a dried bear garlic that will revolutionize your preparations.

What is the flavor of wild garlic?

To the nose, we understand perfectly its name, the bear garlic presents a light smell of dried garlic. However, the taste is quite different. Bear's garlic offers more herbaceous and floral flavors, and is much more delicate in the mouth.

How is wild garlic harvested?

This wild garlic is found in humid undergrowth, often near streams, you can perfectly find it in France, especially in the Alps, at the bend of a walk. It is from mid-March, or even a little later, that the leaves come out of the ground. At the end of spring and the beginning of summer, the wild garlic reveals charming small white flowers. Bear's garlic is harvested before it blooms. The herbs are then dried and dehydrated.

How to use wild garlic?

Bear's garlic is a chameleon. This plant can be used in many preparations to put your taste buds in excitement. In seasoning on a pizza, in an omelette, in a marinade, wild garlic works wonders.

Our recipe ideas with wild garlic

Bear's garlic pesto

Forget the basil and prepare a delicious bear garlic pesto. As with a traditional pesto, you'll need olive oil, parmesan cheese, pine nuts, salt and pepper, and bear garlic of course. Blend the mixture and serve with pasta or simply on toast as an appetizer. You can even add sun-dried tomatoes to your toast.

Bear's garlic marinade

Are you a barbecue or plancha lover? You'll love wild garlic. Prepare a marinade for your entrecote and other chicken fillets. Marinate it in oil (by sealing your jars, you can keep it for a few months). Then, simply brush it on your meat and cook.

Potato pancake with wild garlic

This is a perfect accompaniment to your grilled meat. Finely chop your wild garlic. Peel your potatoes and grate them finely. Add flour, egg, salt and pepper, then the wild garlic. Shape them into patties and cook them in a pan with olive oil. Your patties should be golden brown.

The virtues for the health of the wild garlic

Bear's garlic was used by the Celts for its medicinal properties. The druids used to use it in their potion. Eating wild garlic is very healthy. It contains vitamin C and antioxidants, it is detoxifying and preserves your cells from aging. It stimulates blood circulation and preserves your cardiovascular health. Bear's garlic is also recommended to relieve stomach aches, diarrhea and upset stomach. You can prepare a bear's garlic tea and consume it after meals. Bear's garlic is also known for its ability to relieve pain associated with arthritis and rheumatism.

The conservation of the wild garlic

My dried wild garlic should be kept in an airtight container away from light, heat and humidity.
