Why bear's garlic recipes in particular?
Strictly seasonal products such as kale, asparagus, strawberries or wild garlic have a special appeal. Those who like to spend their free time cooking and enjoying themselves look forward to the seasonal delicacies. Bear's garlic is definitely one of them. It is also called garlic spinach. Its gentle garlic aroma is carried by fresh green leaves. It can also score points in terms of health with its vitamin C, potassium, calcium and iron content. In contrast to garlic, wild garlic has no unpleasant body exhalations.

Leisure: Collect wild garlic or grow it yourself
From March onwards, wild garlic can be found in humid, shady forest areas. It is harvested until flowering in May, when it loses its flavour considerably. Be careful, there are regions in which the bear's garlic is protected! Otherwise, small quantities can be picked for personal consumption. Attention, do not confuse it with lily of the valley! In the garden the seeds are sown in autumn. The ideal location is humid and shady. At the local weekly markets in March and April, fresh wild garlic can be found more and more often at the vegetable stands.

Bear's garlic out of season?
Bear's garlic tastes best fresh and processed raw. One method of preserving it for some time, however, is the preparation of a bear's garlic paste or as a bear's garlic pesto. Washed and chopped, it can also be frozen in portions. Dried it loses its aroma.

Frozen in portions, correspondingly longer. So you always have the wild garlic aroma to hand.For one wild garlic pesto, mix 300 g of cut wild garlic, 30 g of roasted pine nuts, 30 g of grated parmesan, 1 teaspoon of salt and about 250 ml of olive oil to a creamy paste. Adjust consistency and taste with oil and salt.

- Wild garlic butter

Season with salt and pepper and put everything in a casserole dish.
