Also know colloquially as ‘ramsons’ wild garlic (Allium ursmum) is a member of the onion/garlic family that grows prolifically in woodland and along hedgerows in spring, often carpeting the ground and reaching a height of about 50cm high. We see (and smell) a lot of it in Ireland when it's in season! Here's a really simple recipe that lets you enjoy the wonderful preserved flavours of wild garlic all year round- this dressing can also be used as a tasty marinade for meat and vegetables.
Ingredients:250ml good olive oil- go extra virgin
50ml Ballyhoura Mountain Mushrooms Wild Garlic Vinegar
30ml Apple Cider Vinegar
1 or 2 tablespoons honey
Salt, pepper to taste
Optional Twists: chilli, wholegrain mustard or freshly grated parmesan cheese.
1. Throw it all into a jar with a lid, give it a good shake. Allow to mellow for at least 45 minutes before serving.
