Also known as garlic mustard or hedge garlic, Jack-by-the-hedge is a type of wild cabbage with a mild garlic flavour. It can be found in abundance between April and June in hedgerows, woodlands or even in the domestic garden. As well as sauces, the leaves can also be wilted like spinach, and the peppery-tasting white flowers are delicious in salads. Like all foraged edibles that are ‘dog height’, pick sensibly and wash well before using.
