Last week’s What Is It Wednesday was so much fun! I loved reading all the answers.
The correct answer, which several of you got, was wild garlic.
Some of you guessed wild onion and I can see why. They look a lot alike, but once you smell them, or pick them, you can tell the difference.
Wild garlic smells and tastes just like garlic. Wild onions smells and tastes like onions. The flowers on them are also slightly different.
In Oklahoma both grow wild all over the place. We have them both on our property during the spring and summer.
Do any of you have wild garlic or wild onions growing on your property?
What Is It Wednesday is a series that I started back in 2011 as a way to encourage my family to try new things. It also became a fun way to share new and unusual foods with my readers. So each week I share a new food that my family tried, how we liked it, and how I cooked it. I also often ask you to guess what it is and then the next week I follow up with the correct answer.
