Gathering Wild Irish Garlic

Gathering Wild Irish Garlic by Saeid @ What's for Dinner?Our talented ecologist friend (Shawn) very kindly took us to into the woods to look for wild Irish garlic. The woods were full and we gathered a whole bag.
Gathering Wild Irish Garlic by Saeid @ What's for Dinner?We found two different kinds of garlic on our hunt. The one on the left (it looks like a white bluebell) is called Three Cornered Garlic or Allium triquetrum. It is not native to Ireland, it has a nice round bulb and thin long leaves. On the right(and top photo) is Ramson's or Allium ursinum. This is a native Irish garlic. It's bulb is longer and thinner than the Three Cornered Garlic and its leaves are wider.

  1. Love the video! That was a nice surprise. To make it more interesting, maybe you should consider something going on in the background, for example, dress someone up in a bigfoot costume, and have him run through the forest.

  2. The video was a surprise for me too. Saeid took it without us knowing. I don't think bigfoot is native to Ireland!
