Wild garlic was already used in the Middle Ages to combat vampires and bloodsuckers because of its strong smell. He drives away evil spirits.

In the kitchen, fresh wild garlic is used in salads or soups. You should not freeze it as the quality will suffer. The onion is crushed or minced and used like garlic. The onions can also be pickled in oil and preserved for the winter.
