I bought a bunch of wild garlic at the market in Freiburg yesterday. I love warm fresh soda bread and for today’s Sunday brunch I baked a soda bread with wild garlic.
I know a lot of people who collect the wild garlic themselves. When you do you have to make sure that you don’t mix up wild garlic with lily of the valley otherwise you’re in trouble. I hope the people from the market stall knew their botanics…
For the soda bread (recipe from bbcgoodfood.com) I mixed 125g white flour, 125g wholemeal flour, 50g porridge oats, half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and half a teaspoon of salt.
It was delicious and the wild garlic added a nice twist without being overwhelming. One other thing probably also added a twist. I only realized my mistake when I wrote the blogpost: I rubbed in 125g butter instead of the 12.5g as stated in the recipe.
