Outdoors: Nature Nite
Saturday 14 March 1998
Young leaves make a deliciously pungent salad, and country lore has it that a rabbit which has been chased through garlic can go straight into the pot without further seasoning, so highly spiced is it when it reaches the kitchen. If free-range chickens eat garlic bulbs, the taste invades their eggs.
As the plants grow to maturity, each sends up a single stalk bearing a cluster of white, star-like flowers, so that you get the impression that there has been a sudden snowstorm. The anti-bacterial action of wild garlic has been credited with many medicinal properties, not least an ability to cure piles, and it is said to alleviate whooping cough, if applied to the soles of the feet.
