Making Good Use of the Invasive Garlic Mustard Plant

April 03, 2013 by Alec McClennan

It is likely you have this invasive plant growing behind your garage, in your back woods, or other forgotten areas of your property. This plant grows fast and spreads each year, threatening to take over entire areas. The problem with invasive plants like Garlic Mustard is that they do not allow other plants to survive and eliminate the essential biodiversity in nature. But... if life gives you Garlic Mustard, why not make pesto? The Western Reserve Land Conservancyagrees that the great flavor found is Garlic Mustard is the silver lining to this regional issue. On Thursday, April 11th, from 6-8:30pm at the Miller Nature Preserve in Lake Metroparks, The Western Reserve Land Conservancy is giving a workshop on different techniques to use when cooking with this plant. Here is the description off their site: In the name of charity, Chef Mario G. Izzo is preparing to turn an unwanted plant into culinary delights for the tastebuds of those attending a Pest (o) Soiree at the Lorain County
