Big Bowls Of Garlic Cloves

Anyone else have a big bowl of garlic cloves within easy reach of the cutting board?

These are mostly leftover Rocambole garlic cloves from when @fermetournesol planted garlic.

Rocamboles have about 10-11 cloves per bulk. We keep the 6-8 biggest Cloves per bulb and put the rest aside.

There was a time when we’d open a furrow and densely plant these extra cloves. In the spring we could harvest bunches of green garlic for market or CSA. Green garlic bunches weren’t a big enough hit with our clients, so we don’t do that anymore.

Instead we have bowls of loose garlic cloves in the kitchen.

And you know what? These loose garlic cloves have been sitting in my kitchen for 4 months and they are still firm and juicy.

This is the last bowl of cloves – it should last a few more weeks and then we can move on to the garlic braids!

My next free online workshop is on Thursday February at 2pm
