It’s that time of year. The wild garlic has sprouted up in my yard in what seems like overnight and I’m ready to start using it in my recipes. But, how do I know if it’s edible? And how can I tell if it’s wild onions or wild garlic popping up?
And the taste? Today’s sample had a wonderfully strong flavor of garlic with the slight heat you would expect from a standard onion. Yum!
Remember that while both are edible, I don’t recommend randomly going out and tasting your yard greens without proper education! You could get a rotten tummy or even poisoned by popping the wrong yard greens into your salads. So please, take my info at heart, and if you have any question as to plant identification: Stop! Don’t eat it! Learn from an expert!
