bulk garlic for sale

7 October 2011

We’ve got our bulk garlic for sale – simply place your order (what you’ve received in your CSA crate has varied between 1/4 and 1/2 pound per week):

Select, Premium $7.00 per pound : This garlic has been hand-selected, sorted and cleaned. This is the garlic that we sell to retail stores. The bulbs and cloves are large and gorgeous.

Field Picked $5.00 per pound : These are smaller – All else is equal!

My parents must have ideal garlic storage conditions right in their kitchen. They have last year’s garlic still sound, solid, and tastey on their counter! Another friend stored her garlic in a plastic bag , in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator for 9 months. 

We spend some time and make a big batch of minced garlic all at once. (The only forewarning about this technique : you will find that you and your family eat more garlic than ever, because it’s so easy to use!)

Minced Garlic:

Peel the individual garlic cloves. Add cloves and begin grinding in your food processor. Watch closely, add only enough olive oil to allow the slurry to grind. Scoop the garlic out into small glass canning jars. Fill them up good and high. Top off with another little pour of olive oil. Screw on the caps. Place one jar in the fridge, for use. All others, freeze until the jar in the fridge is gone and you need more. (Frozen, the garlic has kept well, well over one year.) Take out one jar at a time. (Call me if you need more garlic for the next batch!)

thank you!  ~chris
