Some even go for pickling of this piquant plant who’s taste resembles the gentle garlic.
The forest garlic (in Latvian Lakši) originally grow wild in the shadow and wet forests. In fact it is the onion relative and only because of the garlic like smell and taste it is being named the forest garlic.
The wild variety is protected specie in Latvia (as well as in Estonia and Lithuania) which means that picking in the nature is illegal. Luckily the forest garlic is cultivated also in the gardens, so no dilemmas to make when stocking in the farmer’s market.
