garlic-harvest.JPGWhat a great year for garlic! The heads are large and healthy. Here’s a picture of some of the garlic harvest, which we’ve tied in bundles.

“How long will the garlic last?” asked a customer yesterday. Garlic is a once-a-year crop, so I want to be able to store and eat the garlic until next year’s harvest. We dry it on the stalk for a few weeks, then cut off the heads. We keep the garlic cool and dry and well-ventilated, but not in the refrigerator. If the heads separate into cloves, the garlic will not keep for very long.

The fresh heads of garlic (washed, trimmed, and ready to use) are available for sale at Kitchen Conservatory. They have perfumed the whole store!
