Bear’s Garlic Cream Cheese

Early spring is the only time in the year when you can obtain fresh bear’s garlic (also called ramps or wild leek). In Poland it is a perfect time for it right now.

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 (also called ramps or wild leek). It grows in forests, but it’s quite hard to find it over there. In Poland in is also partially protected. That’s why I got mine ramps 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. Check twice before you eat something that is growing wild, it can be dangerous!

One thing that can help you to recognize bear’s garlic is it’s smell – yes! it smells like garlic:)
