Often there is more wild food growing around us than the birds and local wildlife could make use of so taking a little for your own use and foraging sustainably is unlikely to cause any harm. Ramsons (wild garlic) grows in abundance and you will not miss it of you have some growing near you 😉 There’s relatively little to confuse it with, making it a good first time forage if you’re new to this -nothing at all smells like garlic, except garlic! Nonetheless there are other things that grow with it that you do not want to ingest so its wise to double check.
A large handful of ramsons
approx 60g of pine nuts or walnuts
approx 60g of parmesan cheese
approx 150 ml of olive oil
teaspoon or so of lemon juice
teaspoon of salt & couple of twists of cracked black pepper corns
Theres no real science to it, depends how you like it
First wash the garlic and chop, stalk, flowers, and all
Add all the ingredients to your food processor without the oil and whiz together
slowly add the oil as you whiz up for a further minute or so
add lemon, salt & pepper to taste
I used some rescued tomatoes and homegrown chili’s with a previously made hedgerow ketchup for a sauce. Delicious!
