My Favorite Wild Edible Wild Onion / Garlic



I am outside today and I want to show you one of my favorite wild edibles, the wild onion.

To identify the wild onion...
First, look for it having a bulb. Second, it should smell like onion. Finally, look for a hollow leaf.

The poisionous look alike called the Star of Bethlehem has a flattened grass like leaf and doesn't smell like onion.

You can use them for a variety of purposes. I like to add them to my morning omelet or soup. I use the stems just like green onions.
