Wild Garlic Butter Recipe

Capturing the taste of spring with wild garlic butter is a great way to celebrate the changing of the seasons and incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients into your cooking. Spring is a time of renewal, growth, and vibrancy, and wild garlic captures these qualities perfectly.

Wild garlic has a unique and pungent flavour that is similar to garlic but with a milder and slightly sweeter taste. By making wild garlic butter, you can incorporate this delicious flavour into a variety of dishes, adding a burst of freshness and depth of flavour that is perfect for the springtime.

Wild garlic butter is a delicious and easy-to-make addition to any dish, and can be used in a variety of ways, such as to spread on bread, as a topping for grilled meats, or as a flavouring for vegetables. Here's a simple recipe to make wild garlic butter:


  • Unsalted butter, softened
  • Wild garlic leaves, washed and finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. First, make sure the butter is at room temperature and softened, so that it's easier to work with.
  2. Wash the wild garlic leaves thoroughly and chop them finely.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, chopped wild garlic leaves, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  4. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary, adding more salt and pepper if needed.
  5. Spoon the mixture onto a sheet of plastic wrap or parchment paper, and roll it into a log shape, twisting the ends to seal.
  6. Chill the butter log in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or until it's firm and ready to use.
  7. Once the butter has firmed up, slice it into rounds and use as desired.
  8. Enjoy your delicious wild garlic butter!
