Green garlic is a tender stalk that is harvested before the bulb develops. Also known as spring garlic, it resembles a scallion, green onion or leek but yields an aromatic, delicate garlic flavour. It has a strong garlic scent with a mild, fresh, herb-like flavour. This unique garlic flavour is present along with the highest nutritional and nutraceutical plant properties.
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.
