A great way to make the most of the very short wild garlic season is to find delicious ways to preserve them so that they can be enjoyed all year round. The deep intense flavour of wild Garlic foraged from the forests on the Rhine blended with sea salt makes this seasoning really healthy and addictive. This flavoured salt gives every dish that certain something extra and can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. It's ideal as a finishing salt for barbecued meats, sprinkled over fresh vegetables, on pasta, or baked into fresh bread. Use sea salt for your infused salt. It is much more aromatic and contains no additives such as iodine, which can lend a bitter taste to foods salted with table salt. Whether you take a small or large crystals is up to you. Coarse sea salt with wild garlic is perfect for the spice mill.

  • 500 g Sea salt, fine or coarse
  • 100 - 200 g Wild garlic leaves, roughly chopped (depends on how green and strong you prefer)
  1. Rinse the wild garlic leaves and pat them dry using kitchen paper or a kitchen towel. Roughly chop the wild garlic leaves.
  2. Place the chopped garlic leaves in a food processor. Add in 100 grams of sea salt. Blend them into a smooth paste.
  3. Pour the remaining salt into a bowl and add the wild garlic paste. Mix thoroughly until all of the salt is consistently green throughout.
  4. Spread out the mixture in a thin layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Let the wild garlic sea salt dehydrate in the oven for about 2-3 hours at 50C/120F degrees. You can also dehydrate the infused salt in your dehydrator. Check the salt once an hour and mix to make the salt dehydrate completely. If weather allows, dry the mixture in the sun for 24 hours or until completely dry.
  5. Place the wild garlic sea salt in an airtight container and leave it in a cool, dry, dark location. The flavoured salt does not have an expiry date but will lose its intensity over time. If you store it properly, it can potentially have an indefinite shelf life. But for optimal flavour and colour, use it up in 2-3 years or just until next wild garlic season.

Has encontrado una manera excelente de conserva este ajo silvestre, una planta que no conocía por cierto, me gustaría probarla, seguro que da a las comidas un sabor muy rico.
Un saludo.

I have not come across wild garlic and even if I do, I wouldn't know. Sounds so interesting.

That sounds like an uber lecker seasoning! I actually saw a ton of wild garlic at my local greengrocer this morning but forgot to buy some. We usually put it in filo pastry cheese pies.

This looks amazing and so interesting Angie. I've never seen wild garlic or garlic leaves that I can use like this. I thought you would be using garlic cloves when I read the title. How did you come by the wild garlic from the Rhine? Beautiful photography as always. I wish I knew how to combine two photos together like you do in Blogger, I've tried but doesn't seem to work. I'm more a cook than a photographer alas. Great post Angie

@HAPPY RETIREES KITCHEN To combine photos together you can use html. It's easy. On my sidebar, you can find the links on html tutorial. For the wild garlic, just google it. That's how I found out where to pick them.

Your garlic spice looked nicer than the packed one in supermarket. I bet own made spice is better and nicer.

how marvellous to go foraging. i don't think we have wild garlic here!

[Reply]
Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 8/4/22 13:32

We never usually have any added salt with our meals, for health reasons, so I don't even keep any in the pantry!

However this looks and sounds so good, that I feel another illicit foraging expedition coming on!

Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend :)

What a delicious way to preserve the flavor of wild garlic when it's not in season! I can think of so many ways to use this delicious seasoning :)

This sounds wonderful! Unfortunately I don't have access to a forest on the Rhine to forage :)

Kitchen Riffs 8/4/22 15:54

Such a neat idea! I sometimes -- rarely; OK, really rarely! -- make flavored salts. Never ever thought about doing it with wild garlic, though. Maybe because when I'm lucky enough to get it I snarf it up immediately as part of a dish I make? Gotta save some for salt making next time I have some. :-)

Angie,
I am intrigued with this recipe and absolutely love the color. Do you forage the garlic yourself? Such a great way to keep enjoying the garlic and preserve it.

I absolutely love this recipe. WOuld it work with garlic scapes?

[Reply]
Angie's Recipes 12/4/22 16:58

@Evelyne CulturEatz Garlic scapes are all stalks, so I am not sure about it, but chives would work.

Wild garlic salt is on my list to try. It will have to wait until next year now though as ours is all over. Your photos are fantastic and what a gorgeous green that salt is.
