Wild Garlic

Wild garlic (or Allium ursinum), is a bulbous perennial flowering plant in the lily family Amaryllidaceae. It is a wild relative of onion, native to Europe and Asia, where it grows in moist woodland.

The leaves of wild garlic can be used as salad, herb, boiled as a vegetable, in soup, or as an ingredient to make a wild garlic pesto instead of basil leaves. The stems are preserved by salting and eaten as a salad in Russia.  The bulbs and flowers are also edible.
