Green Garlic

The Basics

If you like garlic, you’ll like green garlic. Green garlic is what you get when you plant a whole head of garlic in the ground in the fall. It comes your way like a bunch of scallions. If we left them in the ground, each stem, which grew from a clove in the original head, would turn into a little head of garlic (tiny and contorted from being planted so close).

Cooking Tips

You can use the whole thing, from the white part down by the roots to the tips of the green fronds. Use it raw in dip or pesto, sautes, soups, and anywhere else you’d like garlic flavor.
