Garlic, Garlic and More Garlic.............

   Left early for work yesterday so I would have time to visit the Duncan Farmer's Market.  

 
A special trip just for garlic.

 
Many of the vendors have garlic for sale.  
I bought from four different vendors and paid anywhere from 3 for $5.00 to $3.00 each.  Not cheap, but worth every penny.


 It stores well so over the next few weeks I'll continue to buy garlic until I have enough to get me through until at least the new year.    

 
There is no comparison between locally grown garlic and imported grocery store garlic.

  2. I store it in a paper bag in a dark cupboard.

    It only starts to sprout when it has a major change in temperature. Grocery store garlic starts to sprout quickly once it goes from refrigerated transportation and storage to the warm store or home.

  5. Yesterday, at our little once-a-month community market I put in my order for garlic braids - they last me all winter and no store-bought garlic compares.

  6. Beautiful pic!
    Ann I have to try the brown paper bag way of storing. I have been cutting the stems on mine and hanging them up to dry out...mine have been coming with the green stems still attached.
    Thanks for the tip!

  7. It's gorgeous! I am planning to stock-up on some local garlic too. There is just no comparison in taste!

  8. I'm waiting for local garlic to appear at the farmers' market. I agree, it's worth every penny. Thanks for the tip on how to store it. I won't hesitate to stock up now.
