I recently found this lovely recipe for Wild Garlic Scones and now that we are in Wild Garlic season, I thought it would be a good time to share it with you.
Wild Garlic season in the UK is from March to June, but you want to catch it before the leaves start to yellow as the flavour is less intense the lighter the leaves get. The flavour is delicious and is a cross between something garlicy and something oniony!!
Its a great recipe and a fantastic savoury addition to an afternoon tea.
This recipe makes approximately 15 scones.
- 500g of Self Raising Flour
- 4 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 200g of butter or margarine
- 250g of grated cheddar cheese
- 200ml of milk
- 2 large handfuls of chopped Wild Garlic leaves
- Heat the oven to 220c/425f/Gas 7 and lightly grease or line a baking sheet.
- Mix the flour, baking powder and salt and rub in the butter.
- Stir in the grated cheese and chopped wild garlic.
- Add the milk to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured work surface and knead lightly.
- Pat out to a round 2cms thick.
- Using a round pastry cutter, cut out your scones and place onto the baking sheet – I used a 7cm cutter – but you can use any size you like.
- Lightly knead the dough back together and repeat.
- Brush the top of the scones with a little milk.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes until risen.
- Cool on a wire rack.
Thanks for reading.
