Bear’s Garlic Pesto

Pesto z czosnku niedźwiedziego

Bear’s Garlic Pesto is a great Spring fresh dish – healthy and easy to make. This is an early Spring and only now you can get bear’s garlic. It grows in forests, but I got mine from my friend’s garden, where I seated it few years ago. Thanks Agnieszka for this 0,5 square meter land tenancy:)

Bear’s garlic should be obtained from a trusted source, as it looks similar to
lily of the valley, which leaves are poisonous.
