I know NOT to put it in the garden, the lane in which we live is absolutey full of it. Do any of you use it or know how to use it? It's a shame not to utilise what nature gives us I think. Thanks in advance.

Wow - there's some good recipes there Boxtops, and some intersting facts too. I liked this:
The German word for wild garlic is Bärlauch meaning "bear's garlic". The botanical name allium ursinum and the French name l'ail des ours means the same thing. Apparently when the European brown bear (long extinct in the UK) came out of hibernation, the first thing it would eat, if available, was wild garlic! Also, I've never heard the wild garlic called Ramsons. You live and learn!
They referred to it on the Archers this morning! A dish was garnished with Ramson flowers so there's another idea.
LOL, does it give you Bear's Breath too...?!
