Foraging Wild Garlic From My YardπŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

So I harvested the rest of my wild garlic today. Since last year I have had people ask a few questions about this so I'm going to try to answer a couple on this post.

Wild garlic and wild onions are in the same family of plants. All wild garlic is safe to eat unless it has been exposed to chemicals. Wild garlic has a round hollow stem and the whole plant is edible. The proper way to harvest wild garlic is to just cut the stems close to the ground and do not dig up the bulbs or roots. This will assure that the wild garlic will grow back every year with no effort from you.

Wild onions differ from wild garlic and have a very noticeable flat stem. Also there are some wild onions that are poisonous. I've seen several articles this year alone where people have unintentionally poisoned themselves from harvesting the wrong ones. I have came across a couple of patches of wild onions but since I don't know the difference I don't mess with them. All I got to do now is figure out how I'm going to use it.

I was born in Columbus Ohio (GO BUCKS) and I've lived here most of my life. However I grew up in Southwestern West Virginia where some of the best cooks in the world reside. I learned to cook out of necessity because I married a "city girl" who could only make things that were in a box, can, or frozenπŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚. After almost 20 years of marriage I decided if I wanted to eat "good" food I was just going to have to make it myself.
