We are delighted to announce that fresh, tender wild garlic from the woods around West Bastelbog House is now on sale at specialist independent green grocer 'Tattie Shaws' on Elm Row in Edinburgh.
At this time of year it is a rare treat to be able to enjoy fresh local leaves. The pungent leaves are good stirred into soups, risottos, pasta dishes and eggs right at the end of cooking. Or, for hardcore garlic fans, try wild garlic shredded into salads.
You can whizz them into a powerful pesto, with walnuts, Parmesan, olive oil and lemon zest. Or, for a flavoursome spread that goes with everything from steak to wilted greens, mash chopped garlic leaves into softened butter. If nothing else it will keep the vampires at bay!
So if you are in the area why not call in to see James and find out what other wonderful organic produce he has available.
Until next time.
