on saturday – while staring off into the distance – i suddenly realised – the time had come for the end of the stocks of wild garlic!!!!!
so as soon as i got home, i scavenged the remaining, remotely healthy looking leaves and a block of butter and set about stretching out some of the gorgeous wild garlic’s life span!
i made some wild garlic butter
i used one big handful of wild garlic – and one big block of butter – play about thought – its a personal thing!
I like to leave bits of greeeeen through the butter looks nicer
and boy was it yummy with our steaks that nice! so fresh and bright tasting! ( forgive the terrible steak photo – half way through chowing on down I suddenly remembered I should probably take a piccie )
and boy was it yummy with our steaks that night! so fresh and bright tasting! ( forgive the terrible steak photo – half way through chowing on down I suddenly remembered I should probably take a piccie ) ( and yes – i used alot – what can i say – i got carried away! )
in my mad frenzy to use some of the depleting wild garlic stocks i also made some more wild garlic pesto – this time with 100g of rocket instead of 50g of spring onions
as you would guessed it – the rocket is some what over powering – but i think i like it – wont be sure till i whip up a pasta dish with it later in the week
