Wild Garlic

Allium ursinum

Wild garlic tastes spicy and fresh and is reminiscent of garlic, so it fits well in very many recipes. Widely used in Switzerland, Austria and the Alemannic region, the herb has many uses. Finely chopped it can be mixed into dips, soups and pestos. A plus point: it tastes very similar to garlic, but won't leave you with garlic breath.

Wild garlic grows in many areas in Europe and covers an area all the way to Northern Asia. It is found prevalently in shady, moist and humus-rich deciduous forests, meadows, canyons and along streams.
