Green garlic is yummy!!! So what is it? Green garlic is the immature garlic plant. Garlic is typically grown and harvested for the bulb once the cloves mature. However, it is becoming ever more popular among gourmet chefs and even home-grown cooks to use green garlic. Green garlic is used like a leek. The whole plant is edible with a much more mild garlic flavor than the mature cloves. Green garlic is a very versatile spring crop. Use green garlic in anything that you would use a green onion or leek in. You can also get creative and make green garlic pesto, green garlic soup, braised chicken with green garlic, green garlic omelets, or even make a salad dressing or sauce to flavor pasta!! We have added some recipes to to the recipe page!! Check it out and try this amazing spring delicacy!
--Happy garlicing :)
