Wild Garlic Soup
When I told a freind the other day that I was going to go pick some wild garlic later on in the afternoon, she just laughed at me and said that I shouldn't poison myself. Well, so far I havn't been feeling sick and havn't turned any shade of purple! Of course you can also buy wild garlic in the supermarket at the moment, but why do that when you can pick it in practically any forest nearby for free?! Anyways, I guess it's everyones own decision where they decie to get it from in the end, but I do highly recommend one thing: use it to make some good ol' soup, like this one! I'm going to try to get some more in the coming days, because there sure are still a few recipes I'd like to try....
