Wild Garlic Sausages Nick 3/4/2014

It is wild garlic season. Wild garlic, Allium ursinum, is a wild relative of the chive and is also known as ramsons. The edible part is the broad leaves, which have a strong garlic flavour. It grows under dense deciduous tree cover, taking advantage of the spring sun before the canopy comes into leaf. It makes damn fine sausages.

We only produce wild garlic sausages during the short season, so make the most of them. For the rest of the year you can still get the taste of it wrapped around the Wild Garlic Yarg in the cheese counter.
