This quick pickle recipe is a great way of preserving the wonderful but fleeting wild garlic season. The sweet and sour pickle liquor balances out the sharp raw garlic taste and a pinch of pink peppercorns enhances the leaves' floral flavour. Feel free to play around with different flavourings; a sprig of thyme or slice of fresh turmeric both work well. Try them in a buttery sauce for a nice piece of white fish, or simply brighten up a salad by scattering a few buds over the top.
