What's up with wild garlic?


 
 Wild garlic (Allium ursinum)- garlic’s more elegant cousin.
 
Including this beautiful plant into our pantry was a no brainer.
We cannot deny it-it’s one of our faves!
We use it nearly in every dish. It’s tasty and doesn’t alienate huggers like the garlic clove.
This beauty has similar properties to traditional garlic, but doesn’t register on your breath! You no longer need to choose between flavor and kissing your date.
 
Wild garlic is a plant of many names. Some of its known aliases are ramsons, buckrams, wild garlic, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek, or bear's garlic-it is a wild relative of chives, and part of the allium family, along with onions, leeks and (unsurprisingly) garlic.
Obviously, wild garlic tastes like garlic, but it differs from the more common cloves as it’s more mellow in flavor, and not as heavy or pungent as garlic cloves.
Health or flavor-you don’t have to choose!
This gorgeous plant has many health benefits. It has long been used for medicinal health throughout the world, known for its many "anti" qualities, including antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antimicrobial, and antioxidant. It contains vitamins A and C, calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium and copper.
Wild garlic is both an antibiotic and antibacterial, it aids in digestion, but it is best known for helping in reducing blood pressure and, hence, heart disease and the risk of stroke.
Well, with all those fantastic properties and it’s complementing talents to so many dishes, it makes sense to pack as much of it into your diet as you can.
At Hands on Herbs, we hand harvest and hand package every leaf, making sure we preserve their numerous qualities and seal in the flavor. Use our dried certified organic wild garlic leaf to substitute traditional garlic in any recipe.
