This wild garlic infused butter is really versatile – use it to make garlic bread, in a chicken or turkey kiev or melted over a griddled steak or baked potato.
Wild garlic grows in dense woodland as it prefers damp, shaded areas.
Identifiable by its strong garlic-like aroma and long, stringy green leaves, it grows from late winter to early spring before bursting into petite white flowers. Unlike regular garlic, wild garlic is mostly used for its leaves, which can be either cooked or eaten raw.
Using a piece of baking parchment, roll and shape the butter into a log, then twist the ends to form a cracker. Chill until needed. You can freeze the log for a month and cut off slices as needed.
