Product information

FLAVOUR IS A FRONTIER


Natoora Wild Garlic Leaves 


- Wild Garlic is more subtle and delicate in flavour than the dried, cultivated bulbs but retains a potency characteristic of all wild plants. 

- In season from February to May, the plants flourish in damp undergrowth near streams, ditches and rivers. 

- From mid-April, the plants go to flower - use these delicate white leaves and seed pods as a powerful garnish. Stem, leaf and flower are all edible.


Take it further


- Finely chopped, folded into mayonnaise. 

- Blend with pine nuts and parmesan as pesto. 


Our packaging is plastic-free


- We have developed our own revolutionary packaging which is entirely plastic-free and home disposable. Each of our recyclable cardboard punnets is flow-wrapped with home-compostable film which, unlike traditional plastic flow-wrap, disintegrates within 180 days. Dispose of the black punnet in your normal recycling and the clear film in your food waste bin. 


- Each punnet bears the ‘Plastic Free’ mark of A Plastic Planet, a grassroots movement which aims to turn off the plastic tap.


Natoora's radical approach to seasonal sourcing is shaping the future of food


- We are revolutionising the food system. 

- We work direct with growers who value flavour, biodiversity and heritage over yield.  

- We give them the support they need to build a better future for food, rooted in small scale, sustainable agriculture that gives back to our planet.

'There are many people who are lucky enough to see wild garlic a-plenty growing freely all around them during its season from March to June, but if you (like me) don’t have fields to forage from, then you can at least treat yourself to these! There are so many possible uses for these pungent leaves: wild garlic butter; wild garlic mayo; wild garlic risotto; and smaller, tender leaves can be left whole (though I’d chop the larger ones, and the stem, too) and used as any other herb, wherever you want. And the flowers are lovely dropped into a salad. But the first thing I always do each year is make wild garlic pesto: just blitz together (I use a stick blender) 50g of wild garlic (weigh once you’ve trimmed away the coarse muddy bits of stems), 4 tablespoons grated parmesan, 100ml of olive oil and a spritz of lemon juice, then salt to taste, adding more lemon juice as needed. Obviously, this is great as a pasta sauce (when I toast a few pinenuts and scatter them on top once pesto and pasta have been tossed together) but it’s wonderful in so many dishes: stirred into soup; dolloped over tomatoes, charred red peppers, or a platter of roast vegetables; stirred into a baked potato or tossed through a bowl of new potatoes; and you can add a little to some oil and vinegar to make a gorgeous, garlicky green dressing!'

Bad quality

Mostly wilted, and also full of insect eggs on the stalks and also slugs. I feel like most Natoora products I've tried are bad quality, would avoid.

Full of slugs

Looked lovely and fresh in the pack, smelled fab on opening and didn't have obvious evidence of pests: however, after throwing into water to wash there were 4 awful looking slugs immediately visible Rubber gloves on and the whole lot in the rubbish bin before investigating further! If you are hardy this would be good, if you're squeamish - avoid

Most of the weight was from the stalks

Each leaf was attached to a stem of around 20cm. That can't be right.

Happy to see this product on Ocado

Great quality produce with a wide range of health benefits too. Only one star less for the amount of washing of the leaves that I had to do.
