KNC’s newest cookbook features recipes using garlic mustard — an invasive, edible herb that has overtaken many woodland habitats. KNC’s first edition printed in 2006 and was distributed to more than 20 states through three printings. The purpose is to educate and draw attention to this invasive species in a fun, informative, and delicious way.
Once you recognize garlic mustard, you’ll see this plant everywhere. It damages ecosystems by crowding out native plant species. It’s a bully whose numerous seeds spread far and wide. It overwinters under the cover of snow, then gets a jump start when spring arrives.
Garlic mustard is tasty, versatile, and nutritious. Its greens have substantial amounts of vitamins A, C, E and some of the B vitamins. The plant also contains potassium, calcium, magnesium, selenium, copper, iron and manganese, as well as omega-3 fatty acids.
Every part of the plant is edible, and it’s available year-round. Due to its invasive nature, gathering as much of it as you want actually helps the environment!
