About 2/3 of our garlic crop this year. You don't know how hard it is for me to say that. The rest lost their stems and are hanging out in a brown paper bag in the pantry until they're needed.Thankfully, we have about one full braid left from last year that has held up incredibly well, having lived in my kitchen since last summer. I'm thinking I'm still going to need more garlic- think salsa, tomato sauce, etc. If any of you local folks have an abundance of garlic, I'd love to barter.
To braid garlic, pull it out of the ground when the stems are half green and half brown. Let them cure outside (keeping them dry) until the stems have just turned all brown, then braid. Go here to check out our braiding garlic post from last year. It's my most visited post via google search.
May we all be blessed with garlic breath!
Not to change the subject but, can anyone guess what this is?
