I’m bringing back my wild garlic pesto recipe for you …. here!

I added this years pesto to some fried sliced chicken thighs and named it “spring chicken!  Warming the pesto up brought out the wild garlic flavour even more so!  But noticed I forgot to take a photo (major fail!). Never mind, we used the remaining pesto, which was good serving to fusilli pasta for a traditional italian dinner!

A good serving of nice fresh free green garlic!

Harvested a bit too much so popped the remaining wild garlic in the freezer for another day.

The harvest!

Whilst i was harvesting it last week, the sun was setting so was really nice lighting.  I took some photos with the iPhone of it and wild flowers too.  The wild garlic flowers were close to coming out too.

Daffs - spring is finally here!
