Where does wild garlic come from?

In France, wild garlic has become popular again in recent years but is still rare to find. In Germany, where I live, wild garlic or “Bärlauch” is a long known ingredient that is very famous in spring.

It is mainly used in sauces or to make a pesto by mixing it with a little olive oil, parmesan and pine nuts.

Wild garlic is an aromatic plant that grows wild, especially in the shade of woods in countries with cooler climate like Germany. It is also easily planted in gardens if your climate is not too warm. Wild garlic looks like lily of the valley. We eat mainly the leaves, the flowers can also be eaten, and its taste reminds of garlic.

The benefits of wild garlic

Wild garlic is really excellent for your health! First of all, it is rich in vitamins, especially A, B and C.

But above all, the particularity of wild garlic is that it contains sulfur, in small quantities. Sulfur has a detoxifying effect, participates in the formation of many proteins and enzymes and ensures the mobility of the joints, as it has an anti-inflammatory and decongestant effect and at the same time prevents the degradation of cartilage.
