I am aware that you can do many clever things with Ramsons. How about this for starters? http://www.eatweeds.co.uk/wild-garlic-pakoras Personally I've tasted it in homemade [not by me] pesto and used it as an additional flavouring in nettle soup.
This year though I decided to go wild and just make wild garlic soup. I simply chopped up an onion and a potato and fried in butter for ten minutes and then added a pint of vegetable stock. Once the potato was tender I then added in the chopped up garlic leaves for five minutes or so. I added masses or so I thought but be warned...they wilt away like spinach. Blitzed and then seasoned it was absolutely delicious. Next on the list time permitting and all that jazz is a nettle picking session!
