Compare the tastes and it is hard to believe that our nettled Cornish Yarg and our Wild Garlic Yarg are made to an identical recipe. The difference comes at the point we paint on the leaves. The striking contrast in taste and texture is entirely down to nature. We gather one tonne of them every year, selecting each leaf by hand from our sustainably managed woodlands, and then freeze them.
Our team of nettlers wrap the leaves around the bare Yarg in a ribbon pattern. Six weeks later, the wild garlic leaf has created a slightly firmer texture than it does when we wrap with nettles. They darken in colour and impart a gentle garlicky flavour so we like to say Wild Garlic Yarg whispers rather than shouts its name.
Wrap in wax paper, store below 8 degrees, serve at room temperature. Wild Garlic Yarg from Lynher Dairies is suitable for vegetarians.
