  1. Wrap well and freeze for up to 3 months, or chill for several days.

  2. Foraging for wild garlic: Wild garlic grows between March and June. You’ll probably smell it as you get near, especially if you’re walking through a patch. Look for clusters of broad, pure green spearhead-shaped leaves growing in damp areas of deciduous woodland, often close to water – and often near bluebells. If it’s flowering, you’ll see pretty white petalled flower heads sitting on a single stem shooting up from connected leaves. If you’re at all unsure, rub a leaf between finger and thumb to release the garlicky aroma.
