Do you know what wild garlic is?
Last weekend, we went for a walk in the fresh air and in the undergrowth, I came across a carpet of wild garlic. This year, I hadn’t picked any yet, so I thought it was a good opportunity to redo my homemade wild garlic pesto recipe and share it with you!
I love pesto in general, but I especially love bear garlic pesto for its mild flavors and delicacy. And I also like the idea of using some of the leaves I picked up on my walks….
To make this pesto I mainly use the leaves but I also slip in some of the flowers before they set seed and especially buds.
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you to be careful when picking wild garlic, there are similar plants that look very similar but can be extremely poisonous. Do not hesitate to ask for advice or to buy some at the market… 😉
Come on, I let you discover my recipe…
