    Not as much as usual as it hasn't been such a great year, usually there'd be lots of tomato based canning.

    Strawberry-rhubarb-blackcurrant jam
    Canned plums
    Piccalilli
    Pickled green beans
    Dried beans
    Plus green beans, chillies, and lots of soft fruits in the freezer

    Just look up wild garlic and you will find loads of photos. It grows easily in partial shade.
    It's definitely not wild garlic and I don't think it's three-cornered leek or field garlic either (spent a lot of time the last week trying to ID it, but it turns out it is surprisingly difficult without the flowers or bulbils )
    I'll post a picture for ID help when it flowers.

    I'm thinking about attempting lacto-fermented mystery allium greens - I think it's few-flowered leek, there is loads in my front garden.

    Unfortunately I can't remember how the flowers look like, but it smells and tastes distinctly of garlic, and looks like blades of grass, so that's probably the most likely ID.

    As it's considered invasive the best thing is too eat it

    I have actually made lemon curd this year but unfortunately not with my own lemons so it doesn't really count.

    I took in some greens for freezing. Pheasants had moved in due to not enough shooting on the posh estates in the area.
