Green Garlic Recipe

Green garlic is garlic that is pulled from the ground before the bulb has time to mature. It resembles the green onion or leek.  It has a strong garlic scent with a mild, fresh, herb-like flavour. Use it in the place of garlic, green onions or scallions. Great on a salad. Most people cook with the white and pale green parts, but you can use the tougher green tops in broths or the like.

Storage: Refrigerate in a plastic bag, or stand upright in water with a plastic bag around it.
